today came somewhat as a surprise, 
as few persons e.xpected it before next 
:sveek. The refusal ot the Toiiserva- 
tlvfi minority of the House to close 
the debate on the provornrnenfs reci- 
procity resolution, and permit a vote 
on it, Hnd tlie Jmiirobability of a 
■ hantre in their attitude, rc.-^ulted in 
the govornmcnf.s decision not to kceii 
parjiament another day. 

This is the first time a session 
tlie Dominion parliament has been 
closed williout the appearance oC the 
governor-general in military state at 
the senate chamber to give formal 
prorogation. A 8 the senate was not 
due to rea.s8eir.blc until August !>, and 
as prorogation could not take place 
without both Housea being present, 
dissolution wbs resorted to. 

Although all the appropriations for 
the yenr have not been voted, the 
government figures that it has funds 
enough to suffice until n new parlia- 
ment has Ix'en elected and ns^embled 
to vote the remainder. The now par- 
liament will be summoned to meet on 
Ortobnr 11, and supply bills will be 
voted at once.

S\CRAMKNTO. Cai.. July 2!).— Dr. W. 
V\ Snow, secretary of the .state board 
of health, has received a report of a 
case of bubonic plague at Contra Coa- 
ta The victim was llurace Flood, aged 
seven vearn, who died on July 26, He 
is supposed to liave become infected 
from bite.s and scratchen of a ground 
squirrel. This is the first case of hu- 
man infection thni has been reported 
In tli>> last year. 

Seatli to S(itarralB and »atB 
gA.N KKANCISCU. July 2U. —follow- 
ing ilie death of Horace Flood of bu- 
bonic plague U) Contra Coata. 185 men 
liave b.en put to work by the federal 
authorities in San Francisco and the 
surrounding bay counties, waging war 
asalnst ground squirels and rats which 
carry tlte plague germ. The Contra Cos- 
ta ''ase is the first reported to the stale 
health authorities! this year and it al- 
ready has resulted in a state-wide en- 
forcement of the law enacted by the 
California leglsiiUure in 1909, malving 
it a tnlBdemeanor for anyone to harbor 
ground sfpilrrelR. The squirrels are be- 
ing poisoned and trapped by tlie federal 
employees, who are making every effort 
l,j "prevent ine communication of the 
recrudescent pla.y^ue germ to the rats 
of the city. During the lust year ilie 
rats have been freed of the germ and it 
was thought until the occurrence of the 
Flood case that Hie danger from In- 
fection by the squirrels had ceased. The 
federal health authorities were not sutn- 
moiied to allfcud the J'iood boy until 
two days before bis death, when it was 
too late to save blin. Dr. Rupert Blue, 
past assl.stant ."jurKeon 
Slates marine, hospital 
lilm. 

•'There Is ab.solutely no doubt that 
the' boy died of bubonic p;ague," said 
Dr. Blue. "Tho complete tests have not 
yet been made, but enough waa delnr- 
mlned to detdde the case nnally. The 
federal authorities liave put men at 
work In the nGigl)l)orliuod, about a mile 
north of Contra Oo.sta, and the state 
law regarding tho harboring of ground 
squll-els will be rigidly enforced. It 
the squirrels can be kept fom communi- 
cating tlie germ to the rats In San 
Francisco and oilier l.irge cltleB. there 
is no danger, but It is Imperative that 
the Btjulrrels be ulatuped out." 

Dr. Blue had hot been informed of 
the case of Joseph Bergman, who died 
at Pasadena of yellow fever, 

"Bergman must iiavc come from aoutli 
of Man«anlllo," Hald Dr. Blue, "1 am 
gatlsfled there la no yellow fever In

flftda thja Conaervative _ party well 
preparfea for the campaign, and at a 
smoker held in tho Young Conserva- 
tive club rooms tonight there was 
much enthusiasm displayed. 

A big effort was made last W«Df^ ^^ 
secure the Hon. Hotaert Rogers as a 
candidate for Winnipeg. The minlH- 
ter of public works lia.s taken the 
matter under advisemeni, but will 
return on Monday from his .summer 
home at the L,ake of the AVoods to 
take charge of the. Manitoba cam- 
paign, and will then give his ans- 
wer. 

Mr. Rogers is brimful of oplinilsni 
on the outlook. Speaking before his 
departure on Wednesday to secure a 
brief vacation, he .said the return of 
the I 'onsorvativo party to power at 
the coming oleolion was beyond 
o.ucstion. He did not look for the 
Conservative party to gain seats in 
...._.___„ ruriri-Jti •-.-i' lh*f r!l?.rlt!rv,.-i 
jirovince.s. He l>olicved, however, that 
the i>arty would hold its own. The 
("ontsorvntlves will gain aome seaLs in 
Quebec, liut the Ontario election 
would go 85 per cent, against reci- 
procity and for Mr. Borden. British 
Columbia, he believes, will go solid 
for thp opijoaition. 

Manitoha will go almost, solid for 
the Conservatives. The Liberals 
havi; no hope of retaining Brandon 
Willi Sil't<m out of jiolltics. They 
nia>- retain Provcncher, but all lite 
present C:onservati ve members — Brad- 
Iniry. Rose, Schaffner. Aleighen, Sharp, 
Staples and CaniijlipU are unl)catable. 
In fact, the Liberals are liaving a 
hard time i>acifying the grain inan- 
agcr.s. It is tindcr.stood that R. L. 
Richardson, the editor of the AVinnl- 
j>eg Tribune, who is advocating reci- 
procity this election, vvill be allowed 
by the Liberals to be offered as a 
sacrifice against "Billy" Staples in 
Macdonald. 

In Saskatchewan the Conservatives 
ao not look to gain more than a seat 
or two. but in .■Mbcrta they will re- 
tain what they have. Messrs. Her- 
r<m and Magrath In the south are 
safe; Calgary will elect whoexer runs 
as a Conservative, while strong hopes 
are held out for defeating Hon. 
Frank Oliver in Edmonton, The bit- 
ter foud lietwcen the former attor- 
ney-general. Mr. (.'roBS, and Mr, Oli- 
ver is intensified. 



AVAHHINGTON. July 29. — DtmofiAtlc 
leaders of tiie house adopted anything 
but R conciliatory tone on tlie wool tar- 
irr situation today. Chairman Under- 
wood and Ri.'pre.senlativo Harrison, of 
the ways and means cominlttee, and 
other prominent Democrats, cxprebsed 
tiicmselvea tonight in unfri«?ndlv terms 
toward a compromise with tli«''^sctiate 
that would mean an lniiea.se in the rates 
of the original l^nderwood bill. 

Meantime President Taft is accredited 
^':• t!"cr; rv*^" i-lked with lilm toduu •"'•h 
a detcrmintaion to veto the bill when it 
reaches him. 

The situation in the house Is the key 
to the entire tariff tangle in congress. 
Cpon the action of the iiouse early next 
week rests thu possibility of further 
tariff leKl.slutlon at this session. Speaker 
('lark expressed conlidence today titat a 
wool bill would be agreed on in conlor- 
ence. and that it would oe signea by

SEATTLE. July 29.— Joseph Taro. 
who conducts a downtown automobile 
stand, was shot and Instantly killed 
by a passenger in his car at Twenty - 
seventh avenue and Cherry sticet to- 
night. The circumstances surround- 
ing the shooting point to either a de- 
liberate ))lot to murder Taro or to a 
holdup , expedition into which the 
automobile driver and his car had 
been impressed. The man who did 
the shooting leaped from the car 
after he had killed his driver and 
made his escape In the darknei.<». 
Taro was sliot three times through 
the head. The murder was witnessed 
by C. B. I.^mont, vice-president of 
the Moran company, and a molorman 
on a Madrona Park car. 

According to the story told by Mr. 
Lamont, Taro's car was moving east 
on Cherry street at low speed. As it 
approached Twenty-seventh nvpmi«, 
the car swung around Lamont's auto- 
mobile. Mr. Lamont. who was In his 
own automobile driving A'cst on 
Cherry street, feared there .vould he 
a colilslon and sliouted to Taro: 
"Look out. you are on the wrong side 
of the street." 

"This is a holdup." shouted Taro In 
reply. 

Immediately the passenger in the 
rear seat leaped to his feet and shout- 
ed: "I told you what 1 would do to 
you," and began firing. 

Taro was shot three times through 
the back and head, tie was killed 
instantly, biTt his hands gripped the 
wheel and he remained upright. 

The automobile ungiilded. turned 
and ran Into the street cur. which 
had come up, and then swung around 
against the curb, where it stopped. 

As !t Btrtifk thfl curb. Taro's nasall- 
ant leaped from his placa and ran 
away. The revolver With which Taro 
was shot was found at the dead 
man's feet. 

The police have obtained only 
meagre description of the murderer.

LONDON. July 29.— The Moroccan 
crisis la practically ended. --Vt least, 
this is the opinion of the British pub- 
lic, although the Foreign Office Is care- 
ful to point out that the negotiations 
are now simple and may drag on for 
months. 

While greatly relieved at the im- 
provement in the situation, even serious 
minded Britishers in discussing the 
crisis are Invariably of the opinion that 
as war with Germany seems probable. 
It would be far better for England if it 
should come now than later, when the 
German navy will have been strength- 
ened ; and also that ICngland would bet- 
ter come to blows with Germany over 
Morocco, or some question In which 
France Is directly Interested; than on a 
question on which Germany and Eng- 
land alone are concerned In. 

In the former case England would he 
assured of the assistance of France, 
while in the latter ]>'raiica might, with- 
out dishonor, offer sympathy, but stand 
aKid« when it came to a flght. 

Germany, according to the English 
view, has made a bluff which is being 
promptly recalled, and ehe ia now pre- 
paring to withdraw.

tho Taylor Mill Lumber company, north 
Government street, was wiped out at 
an eurlv hour this morning. While it 
was Im'possible to seouro deta.Ued 
amounts of loss the aggregate lose is 
estimated by members of the firm to 
be »1 00,000. 175,000 on buildings, ma- 
chinery, etc., and »25,000 on stock. In- 
surance to the amount of about J25.- 
000 was carried. 

The origin of the blaze Is a mystery. 
The night N\vatchman. Newlands, who 
was forced t0..fly for his life before 
the flame.o, believes the tire waa cauaed 
by a spark from the furnaces Igniting 
shaving in the engine room. Mr. E. W. 
Spence. who was on his way home at 
1.15 ociuck first noticed the flamee as 
they appeared in llickerlng shoots from 
the wooden funnel of the drying 
situated on the Government street aide 
of the mill. He started on a 
for the alarm box when he m 
nlffht watchman flying in the same dl- 
rectum. K,i-yinn out. ■■ ••■ — ~ '' 
alarm." Mr, Spence discovered the box 
and sent in the alarm. In four minutes 
ttie brigade was on tlie scene and tlie 
first water turned on. In that incred- 
ibly short time the entire mills prem- 
ises w'ere ablaze from end to end, 
large, wooden structurea 
up as If made of tinder. 

Plant "VTas Boomed 
By the time the fire department had 
lialf a do-,5en lines .laid the plant was 
doomed, with the exception of 
flee building on the southern 
that was the chief centre of the fight, 
as adjoining it on Its south side wus 
the large gas storage tank of the B. 
C Electric company fllled with gas. 
Everv effort was made to preserve the 
office building and nearly a doien 
streams were kept playing upon the 
building and the long shed behind. 
These efforts proved successful and any 
danger from the possible explosion of 
tlie gas was averted. 

As soon as Chief Davis arrived at 
the scene of the blaze he appreciated 
the necessity of every effort being 
strained to prevent the spread of the 
flames to the adjoining mill properties. 
The harbor Indent at the north sldo of 
the burning plant prevented the spread 
of the flames in that direction and sev-

Don't Take Chances 
Drink White Rock 

Then you'll he sure yovi are not imbibing cither a\i 
aquarium or a gra\e\ard. "White Rock." the famous Lithia 
Water is an easy .-olntion <-\ tb.a. pure water problem. Th's 
best cold bottle of the day is certified by leading analysts to 
be "ab.solulely jniic." 

Try White Rock in your home early in tlie morning, in 
the daytime or late at night. It is a delicious, sparkling tonic 
which the head of every Victorian family should insist upon 
his children and womenfolk drinking at the present time. 

Do not let your dealer supply you witb an inferior mineral 
water. There is nothi'ng too good for Victorians: it is 
proverbial of them that they demand the best procurable. 
White Rock is a little dearer than many other so-called 
lithias. its absolute purity m akes it well worth t he extra 
cost.

"There will be no war. Germany Is 
pia-slng a game or Uluff in order to take 
advantage of a 'khaki" election In the 
winter." Such was tlie characteristical- 
ly orlBinal solution of tlie Moroccan 
embroKllo threatt-nlng the peace of 
Kurope, as seen by Mr. .Sidney Webb, 
l.,L.B., the eminent economi.st and au- 
thor and the most respected and rcs- 
ponsibl,' of I-InKllsli Socialists. 

Mr, and Mrs. -Sidney Webb--itils wife 
being one of the best known educa- 
tionists in the Old Country-— are on a 
plca.sure visit to Victoria in the cour."5e 
of a (our round the world. 

"Aol I do not for one nioment be- 
lieve there is any Immediate prospect 
of any but verbal hostllitieH brcakinR 
out between England and Germany,' he 
said. "To my mind, it is a political game 
to suit ttU parties. Germany will have 
a general election about December or 
January next and It is certain that the 
Social Democrats will gain anything 
Uj? t9 100 K»ats. It. therefore, has oc- 
currod to the German government to 
fall back on the old ruse clayed w'th 
such success In Kngland in laOO and 
take what w« call a "Uliakl" election. 
The prospect of war abroad means 
peace at home and the German govorn- 
ment knows that the danger of war 
with France and Great Britain will raUy 
public sentiment ,to its support and 
ensure a return to power, that if an 
election were taken on other 8ro#.id8 
would inevitably end In defeat. 

''JSfor need one look very CZoScly tO 
see that this game of bluff is as much 
to the a<Ivi)nlage of Mr. Asqulth's min- 
istry as to the present German govern- 
ment, raced himself with the pros- 
pect of an early dissolution on the 
Dordis veto, Mr. Asqulth and his col- 
leagues have already chloroformed op- 
position in parliament by the warning 
of impending war and he is sure that 
such a cry would be as effective in the 
country as in the House In rallying na- 
ilonal support to the party la power.' 

Socialistic legislation 

TIk' Sociali.st l.ador l.s very optimis- 
tic on the spread of Soclall.srn in Iilng- 
iand. The country i.s being permeated 
by yoclaii.stic legislation, be said, and 
tlie moderation of lOnglish Soclalisis 
enabled tiieir tends lo be examined and 
tested with less prejudice and corrcH- 
pondlngly greatei- advantage. Mr. \AVobb 
was astonished at and far from sym- 
pathetic to the "political excesses iit 
vaiiauiari Socialiani and Wxk vli>icnc« of 
its expression." He supports the policy 
01' i)orme:uion that has so effectually 
infected tiio Liberals in Un-r Old Coun- 
try with Socialistic doctrines.

from Puget Sound during those months. 
One mill has Chinese orders . on its 
books for lUO.OOO sacks of bluestcm 
cut-off, and several other mills on 
tidewater and in tho interior have so 
mucli business that they are not at all 
anxious to take on iwiK. business for 
September delivery. ' :"

LETTERS TO TH E EDITOR 

Pandora ATeana 

Sir, — Many people wonder and enquire 
of me by telephone and otherwise re- 
garding the extension anil widening of 
Pandora avenue, and whether it Is 
blocked — and when one reflects on the 
wny our work has been criticised by the 
Times paper and the mayor's action in 
trylni^ to kill It by getting up a hot air 
plan that would cost millions, one which 
he knows would never pass the council, 
yet he pcrnlats wasting the time of the 
city ofnclals, making plans which will 
only go to the waste paper basket as 
Morley's million dolar mushroom, and 
when we are confronted with such tom- 
foolery, it is no wonder the public ars 
muddled as to what Is really being done; 
HO to ceport progress I will Jjuat say that 
the extension part through to Oak Bay 
avenue has been passed, and Is now law, 
and the widening near Do'jglas strset 
ir«> are now working on, and when "ws 
get Pandora street widened io the K. A 
N. statloii, the market property will 
then alnoat face on Painlora striMt, and 
will be the most gppropriato pUmso to

VANCOUVF.R. July 29.— Vancouver 
came back with a vengeance today 
in the seventh league match, tlie 
local Minto cup aspirants winning by 
one of the most sensational Clnishe.s 
evt>r witnessed on the local lacrosse 
field, the score at the eouoUislon of 
play lielng 11 glials to G anti once 
agfiln tlie VancouvcTs have the edge 
on the world'.s champions In the 
nnrr.hrr c.f g.T.:r.rK v.-o.i. Vancouver be- 
ing credited with four victories. 

It looketi as If the famuus Salmon - 
tndlies would grab the game in tlie 
last (luarter today when they puHed 
down a long lead, secured by the 
locals In the second (juarter. They 
opened the last nnarter two goals 
down hut before the teams had been 
In action live minutes they had punc- 
tured the net twice, tlelng the score. 

It was then that the Vancouvers 
performed their "come-back" sensa- 
tion with telling effect. Twenty-five 
seconds after the .Saltntm-bollles hail 
sent thrills Into their own supporters 
by notching the tlelng: gf'«l. the Van- 
cntneis opened the scoring and by 
brilliant pa.sslng in front of the gonl 
ftiid spectacular work In the field, 
bulged the net five times In succes- 
sion behind Sandy Gray and brought 
the total tally up to ll-(>. 
Xislonde tbe Star 

Laionde'g marvellous worl< In front 
of the goal with a man practically 
iianging over his shoulders had a lot 
to do with turning what looked like 
a .ipfs»at intt) .a glorious victory. It 
was Lalonde who started the goal- 
getting. Tie took a pass right in front 
of the goal with his check hugging 
him, but lie turned and placed the 
ba!) in the net for the winning gotil 
before Gray could set hlm.sclf. He 
followed up tills sensational play with 
an even greater .stunt when he took 
a pas.s from tho side with his hack 
to the goal and sliut the ball over his 
head Into the net. 

Following this the Vancouvers got 
three more goals in rapid succession, 
outplaying the world's champions at 
every stage. 

The champions' defense wa."? com- 
pletely demoralized by the hrilliancy 
of the Viincoiuer attack and ihcr;.- had 
al?solutely no chance to keep out the 
fast moving oppo.slng scoring division. 

L'p until tlie last quarter when the 
score was tied and Vancouver went 
out and ran In five goal« in a hurry 
the play was probably not as bril- 
liant as has marked some of the con- 
tests In the past, but was just as 
stronuous, as tlie jiennlty list shows. 
Vancouver had the liettcr of the play 
in almost every quarter and the ma- 
jority of their goals were tlie result 
of snappy comlitnalion plays, while 
four of tho Royals' goals resulted from 
individual work, their combination 
being broken tin liefore they could get 
within sight of the V*ancouver goal. 
Willie thei-e were some who never 
conceded the Vancouver.^ a chance In 
view of what the champions did to 
them in the I'lst match in New West- 
mln,ster, but even tlijsse admitted that 
It was a \astly superior bunch of la- 
crosse players than what represented 
the local club that played phiyed on 
Queen's Park two weeks ngq. 

The Vancouvers displayed better 
form all tlirough, and although the 
Snlmon-bellies threw an awful scare 
Into the supporters of the local team 
when they tied the score, Vancouver 
deserved tho victory. Their playing 
was more effective and the home team 
had the New Westminster defense 
gussing In every quarter. New Weat- 
mlnster played hard lacmsae all the 
way and never abandoned hope, hut 
today they met a superior combina- 
tion, the final score .lust about indi- 
cating the difference in the merits of 
the two twelves. 

AU-Btan XnproYS. 

The changes made in tho line-up of 
the Vancouver team added greatly to 
the strength to both the defense and 
home. Wlt,h the exception of Wlnto- 
mute on Instead of Feeney. New 
Westminster fielded the same team 
that defeated Vancodver two wct-ks 
ago. 

Messrs. Dltchbiim and Okell, the 
both well known Victoria players, of- 
Qclated as referees, and although 
there were j-pme acts deserving of 
heavier oennltles than were handei^ 
out, th<^r work op the whole w«* 
good. They made both teams e'lm- 
Inate any nnneccMmry roagh play, and 
although one Or two c«s«e esoatMsd

Correct Fall Fashions 
Shown by Campbell's 

They're here— the very finest models in the 
new Suits and Coats that ladies will wear this 
fall. 

Styles notable for clever finishing, for fine- 
ness of line and every detail, but the very first 
point that impresses one is the BEAUTY and 
DIFFERENCE of the rare, rich maiermis oi 
which they have been made. # 

' Rugged roughish materials in diagonals, tweeds as welT a5^,tKe 
always demandable serges and broadcloths. Rugged Scotch grays 
and b owns that twinkle with flecks of bold contrasting color 
sprinkled recklessly about-have been chosen ^Y an eye keen to 
_4|,^i, ^cKierful possibilities, and moulded marvellously into gar

Master tailoring there has been— but never 
■tailoring that was more masterful or masterly 
than that which has wizardized our Coats and 
Suits for Fall. 

Anticipating the unusual demand for early 
buying, our Mr. Campbell has expressed us, 
direct from the recognized style centres, some 
scores of fashion's most authoritative models. 
Further shipments will be coming along daily. 

You will undoubtedly be pleased with the 
sliohtlv extended length of the coats (to the 
suUs) and the late skirt fashions— some with 
plaits, others severely plain. The price range is 
very extensive, commencing at $17.50 until they 
reach $75.00. 

QrOTCH WATER PROOF COATS 

Only yesterday we unpacked an express ship- 
ment of Scotch Waterproof Tweed Coats. 

These Coats come in the real Scotch mixtures 
with round or raglan shoulders and wind-proof 
sleeves. They are built very much after the fa- 
mous Burberry Coats (for which we are exclu- 
sive agents). Indeed, they're splendid warm 
coverings for motoring and the cool fall even- 
ings. Prices from $18 to $30.

date will he as convenient as any otlier, 
although perhaps if nominations linil

been better. We suppose, however, that 
t^.e rarmers -srlSJ is ibout tJjroBSh.Tyit'.i 
^j^thelr harvest by the dA^a fixed. »h(J that 

lime Riven to prepare for the election 
Is quite long enough especially as 
every one knowa the chief Issue upon 
which the contest win be fotiRht. That 
issue will be the Reciprocity Agree- 
ment. Doubtless local and personal con- 
--e^oratiaBB wrtU Bntar into tho cnuinntgn. 



Already. «een evidence of • disposition 
on th« part of InHuentlal Americans to 
looK upon the agreement as « commer-

to mAlie good the results of waste and 
Improvidence.

Policy, Inaugurated by them more than 
thlrtj; years ago, and not materially de-

lowed by the Liberals, has been to place 
C»nad» in an unprecedented condition 
of pr»aperlty; they claim that thl^ 
prosperTty ought not to be Interrupt- 
ed by' any doubtful fiscal experiments. 
They contend that the aim of all Can- 
adla'ns ought to be to promote Imperial 
Bolldarltf; that inter-Imperial trade will 
be an Important factor in accomplishing 
thH, and that recltirortty v(*lll tend* to 
dt#eai it utterly. Th«y see clearly that

whatever. They stand for Canada as

.7 members will represent the view-! of

l!io5;e \le\v.« will have the weight to 
which they are entitled when it comes 
to a vote in jiarliament. To what extent 
Sir Wilfrid liaurier may Itave been In- 
llueiiced by eoiisldera tlons of this na- 
ture to hriiii: oM an election without 
waiting for redisirihution, we shall nut 
undertake to say. 

The roiiiini; eleetlon will be a liirn- 
Ing point in the hlstor.\- of Canada. We 
have come to a tliii^ when we mu*il 
as a p'o|de deiermin^ tlie general rhar- 
Hoter of Canada's future. This is no 
time foi- the employment of extravagant 
language, for it Is desirable that the 
issue shouki be presentea frankly and 
without iiaHsIon or iire.indlee. \\'e may 
'.50 Con-crvativ.";; or v.-e may be Liberals, 
but' It is to be hoped that we are all 
alike good C.'nnadiu. IS and loyal to the 
Krnpire. The Lanrier ministry has nego- 
tiated a reciprocity a;;reemenl wild the 
United tstates. As a iiroposal bearing 
upon trade that ai;reemeiit iias its good 
feature-! ns well as tlione ihat are ob- 
joctioniible. On which side the prepon- 
<leranc'- lies we have never been very 
i-.'irefiil to InvesLicate. Jf the uuestion 
simply were on our part whetlier or not 
we should tuke the duty off some few 
article^, that might very well have be<-n 
decided In the way in which ordinary 
tariff changes are derided. If on the part 
of the United States the tiue-Jtloit were 
whether or not some of our products 
sliould be adniHted to that coimtry duty 
free, (.'aiiadlans would not have to con- 
cern irienifietves about the matter at all. 
At present ewch country Is tiscaUy in- 
dependent of. the other and the legisla- 
tive body of one is not obliged to con- 
sider the legislative body of the other 
In deciding how a customs schedule shall 
be arranged. But by the lie ciproclty 
Agreement we sticfincfc our fiscu! In-

that both parties by the terms of the

The case of the 81kh woman and her 
df.ughter before the courts on an appli- 
cation for habeas corpus Is one of 
peculiar hRrdslilp. We do not. propose 
to rommeint upon the legal aspoct of the 
case, but we feel that Is only right to 
say that the case Is one in which the 
.Pomlnlon government would be fuUy 
Justified In exercising Ua undoubted 
powers to permit the woman and her 
ehiui to remain In the country. Her hu*- 
band Is a Sikh and a very deserving 
man, who has by Industry and thrift 
accumulated considerable property in 
Canada. Naturally he wanted to have 
his wife and child with him, and went 
to India for them. Now he finds him- 
self fliynfronted with tlje possibility that 
they may he sent hack attain. This will 
be grossly unjust If It is allowed to hap- 
pen. It Is not desirable that any con- 
slderablo increase In the Hindu popula- 
tion of Canada should be permitted, but 
as a certain number have been allowed 
to come in, it is Kros.sly unjust not to 
allow their wives and family to Join 
thorn. There is no other part of the world 
where such inhumanltv would be pos- 
sible small wonder Is It that the Sikhs 
are throwing away the medals, which 
t;.«y once wore with ho»o.v hut wh.c. 
now represent to them only a useless 
sacrifice. ^ ■

sirable to adopt a rule here that prc- 
\ail,s now hiie else in the British Do- 
minions as far as v.-e arc aware we 
do not know. There are Buhstantial 
reasons aKainst ."uch a change as Is 
proposed. Vehicular traffic keeps to 
tlic left, whsther the vehicles are cfCr- 
riages, motors, or street cars. Take 
thi! case of a person alighting fiom a 
carriage under' t.he present rule. Wh.n 
it (Irav.-.s up to the kerb the person 
steps oil Into a stream of peojilo mov- 
ing in the same direction as i" i> ro- 
ing, and as ..le chances are very few 
that he will alight only to go in the, 
direction from v.-liieh he lias come he 
will be less incommodt ' than lie would 
he if the people were going In the op- 
,„.sUe direction. Take the case of a 
person wisihlng to take a carriage or 
stiiet-car. If he keeps to the right ho 
will be al>ic to see from the edge of 
Iho sidewalk where the vehicle is and 
would not be obliged to force his way 
.ncioss a moving tl'.ro;u;. as would be 
case If he had to keep to the left of 
the puvemeiit. Take the case of a 
crowii of people, some on foot and some 
In carriages coming out of a public 
place, say for example Beacon Hill 
Park. If both pedestrians and vehicles' 
• ..(,1 t,, the left they woulii he. in cacti 
othf^r's way. wh.-reas if the vehicles 
went to the left and the pedestrians to 
the right there would be a minimum of 
confusion. We understand that in some 
cities In the United Stales tlie rule is 
for pedestrians to keep to the left, but 
this Is because vehicles there keep to 
tne right.

The committees which have the ar- 
rangements in hand for the Conservative 
picnic havo drafted a .splendliJ pro- 
gramme of isport.M, and everything: points 
to one of tlie most succe.s.sful g-athurlngr-i 
ever lieUl under the auspices of tiie 
parly In this city. Goldslream has been 
selected as the rendezvous for this 
years' celebration, and the committee 
whlcli had the Belectlon in hand reports 
this heautlfur pleasure resort as lo'^lc- 
Inh' prettier than a picture, with Uy 
lawn like terrac: an ideal spot for the 
crowds to witness the sports . and car- 
nival wbicli will be held on AuRUst 
12th.' Mr. Miller, the proprietor of the 
Oold.itream hotel, has swnt a grSnt deal 
of time ana money in ' xiHpTvVtr.» t..o 
hostelry, and In the park adjacent to 
the stream, swinK.s, rests and a speak- 
ers and dancing platform have been 
elected. The hotel itself has been reno- 
vated, and at no time has the place 
prei^ented such an Inviting appearance. 

The date set for the picnic has been 
arranged so that Premier McBrl^e ^111 
he accferded by his siipporters a <«ordial 
■welcome home. 

The lion. Richard McBrldo will be en- 
abled to speak of his recent experiences 
In the old land, and it la expected that 
several of his ministers, and possibly 
Bome of the candidates, who will carry 
the Conservative banner In the coming 
Dominion election, will also deliver ad- 
dresses. 

Several new features have been ar- 
ranged In the sports programme. There 
Is to be a harem skirl race, and a hand- 
some silver cup has -bee-, offered for the 
hobble skirt championship of British 
Columbia. There is also a hobble aklrt 
race for gents. Scotch sports, a baby 
contest, a Conservative queen contest, 
and a tuK-of-war open to team* to he

•'The entire district ini.ludcu in the 
Columbia ridinM la on the eve of rapid 
and substantial growth.^' says Hon. 
Thonuis Taylor, who returned a few 
day.s ago from a tour through that beau- 
tiful portion of British Columbia. "All 
that is necessary to convince anyone of 
this patent fact is that he or she travel 
through tills justly famous valley, and 
note the development and progress so 
evident on every hand. The crops 
tlirougbout the valley are looking ex- 
ceptionally well, with every indication 
of their hcins especlelly h»»vy this sea- 
son, the recent rains having accomplish- 
ed great things." 

One early result of the recent visit 
of the minister of public works to the 
district will be the ordering of three new 
graders and a new road roller. .s>^me five 
tons in weight, for use in road construc- 
tion and maintenance In this district.

TUc long existing controversy be- 
tween the Canadian Northern Pacific 
and the- Canadian Pacific as to i!he right 
of the former lo parallel the C. .1". It. 
tracks al<;iig the Krascr river from 
Lytton to Cisco Bridge, where t'he C. 
P. K. crosses the river lo Its west bank, 
has been amicably ended by the with- 
drawal of tlie C. N. P.'s petition to the 
Hallway Commission for rfcogiilU->n of 
the claimed right. 

At tne hearing of the application be- 
fore the Hallway Commission last year, 
It was vigorously opf^osed by the C. 
P. It. on the ground that the applicarts 
had not status, being provinclally in- 
corporated, and .thereby possessed of 
no authority to expropriate wiUliin tho 
territory In consideration. It was fur- 
ther argued that the building of the 
new transcontinental line below the 
C P. R. tracks would menace the safety 
of the latter, through possible under- 
mining of the embankments on 
which thev rest. An export report as 
to the feasibility of the proposed un- 
,._.T..i„.- rr..!.! en cneiheering and 
technical standpoint, ■was subsequently 
prepared at tlie Instance of the two 
companies by Mr. C. H. Cartwright. C. 
13 for submission to and tthe guidance 
of' the Commission, which has now been 
In poiisession of that document for 

some lime past. . . ^ v *■ ., 

The original plan submittrd by the 
Canadian Northern Pacific, operating 
in British Columbia under the distinct- 
ively Provincial charter abov; refer- 
red to, involve^l the bridging of the 
main Thompson river a few mile^s above 
Lvtton and the paralloUng of the C. P. 
R main line thence to Cisco Brldgr^ 
instead of doing this. It is now intended 
o submit to the Railway Commission 
an amended plan providing for one 
bridge across the main Thotnpson nver. 
and two bridges across the Fraser The 
route as planned and aPP^^f^ »n^ Mr. 

will not be more than 1,000 feet longer 
Tnan «H orlKinaUy P»4nn.d and pat-al- 
oUng the C.P.n. Briefly It means the 
Sdglng of tbe tnaln -T^o-P*- v- 
miles above Lytton, the line thence toi 
^v"g the main Thompsoi. to Lytton 
r ts%onfluence with tbe Fra«e_r and 
descending the east bank of the Fraser 
?or Talf a mile. When the firn cross- 
ing of the "Father of Waters" takes 
l"fee Next the line Is to descend the 
oppo«He bank for five miles crossing 
n«a"n to the other side of tho Fraser 
:S oxlmately 1,000 feet above the C.R 
^^\„(<i-e -t Cisco. The C. N. P. Hne 
win 'thus run fully two hundred feel 
hoiow the C.P.R. tracks. 
*'*^;n- B—nd or lower of tbe proposed 
bridges across the Fraser at Cisco will 
Seerected at « higher elevation than 
Umt of the existing C.P.R. bridge at 
Ulmt point, and will most probably be 
of the cantilever type. The proposed 
bridge half a mile below Lytton as well 
as the bridge over the main Thompsop 
above Lvtton will be ordinary span 
structures. -Mthough -.e amended plan 
rails for these two additional br dges 
the coat may not exceed the original 
estimate, as the building of a roadbed, 
on conc;ete support, Just below the t. 
P R tracks would have been necessar-

the lady of the 
house is concerned, 
it is certain that it 
has taught the man 
as well as the wo- 
man that the 
drudgery of house- 
work can l)e easily cut in half by using the 
various electric domestic devices that are 
now in every dav use. 

"^Take our Electric Iron for instance, in- 
stead of perspiring in a stuffy kitchen and 
stooping over a very hot range, with the 
use ot the Electric Iron, this part of the 
wife's domestic life is made more of a 
pleasure, and the monthly fuel bill is ma- 
terially reduced.

HERE • AND^ THERE 

It is very hard for anyone who has 
not lived In a. largo city to reallae the 
lerrlble losa of life that begins with 
the hot weather every season. The re- 
cords of Infant mortality only tell half 
the story. The Bufferlnsr of those who 
recover and the wesknen*, often life- 
ions, that follows the prostration of 
the^Bunuiier, are sometimes more to be 
<jrM<<»d than dnath Itself. 

But modern science has entered the 
lists on behalf of the babies with the 
King of Terrors. For but a few years 
generous and wise men and womun 
hav* devoted all their efforts lo saving 
the lives of the little children. They 
have procured pure mlllc for them, and 
have taught their mothers how to talte 
care of thcni. The beneOts of fresh air 
and cleanliness have been shown and 
efforts made to put the little ones In 
purka and other places where It was 
possible to breathe. The results have 
been very encouraslng. In the llrst 
two, .weeks ot .July last year there were 
1006 de.Ttli.i. This year, one of excep- 
tional henr, the death rate fell to 706. 
To save tliree hiin'ir*''! innocent Uvea in 
so short a time is worth all the effort.^ 
put forth. But It !» not believed that 
this savlnK Is larRC enough, and plans 
are being made to e.Ktend the beneft- 
cent work. 

Is it possible that mothers in these 
western cities whore fresh air Is to be 
had for tne taking, need some of the 
Instrmiion which lias saved so many 
lives in the crowded eastern centres? 
The people of Portland evidently think 
»fi for novine pictures o£ t'nc Culli's 
Welfare Kxhlblt of Chicago are being

London or Chicago, have learned that 
no environment is so bad that It can- 
not be made better may not we learn 
that in the treatment of Infants the

Women'* Dress. 
After a long Interval the movement 
for adopting men's attire has been re- 
vived among women. It Is not likely it 
will be nioro successful now than in 
the time of Mrs. Bloomer. There is 
among western women a dislike to ap- 
peurlng dressed like a man which very 
few svomcn care to try to overcome. 
In our resistance to this change we 
may not bo logical but wi>enever iliil 
reason and fashion agree? 

A Coal Famine. 

It Is !i:nd fyir us to realize that with- 
in a few weeks the cold weather will 
be iiack apaln. Hut 11 will jinl conif

peoplfi of the middle west for even thp 
Interior of our own province. 

lOvfrythiiig, It Is said, points to a 
splendid imrvest In the middle west, 
and many of us are looking forward 
to the settlement on our island of 
farmers whose retirement with a com- 
petence this autumn's harvest will as- 
sure. We may well pray that nothing 
may happen to disappoint the hopes of 
the prairie farmers, for on tiiem, to .1 
great extent, depends the pro.sperit.\- of 
tlie whole country. 

But do not let u.s think that all the 
nrople on tlie prairies will be ricli, 
however bountiful the harvest may he. 
In the present year thousands of honie- 
.steads have been taken up. some, of 
these are uwnod by men who were abb- 



to provide their famllle" with every 
comfort. I'ar more are occupied 'ly 
poor people. On each farm !■ a tiny 
house. In some of them men live alone, 
men young and strong, with little or 
no money. If lh*y have raised a crop 
the nrst- year it will barely keep them 
and their farm animals. In some tliero 
are lads with old mothers who will 
look wistfully over the frozen wastes 
and think of their humcs In eastern 
Canada, or perhaps in the motherland 
or In southern Kurope. In another a

perhaps moat, of these miners have

Death of an Artist. 

The many friends of MIms TuIIn 
.spent ><evenil \-ciirK in \'ictorl;i. 
deeply sympathize with her In the loss 
of her sister. A late Is.suc of t'he 
Toronto Globe has the following ref- 
erence to the death of the gifted lady: 

".\ promising young Canadian artist 
died on the morning of the J8th of July 
in Toronto In the person of Miss Syd-

late Klvas Tully, C.K., for many years 
architect and engineer of the Public 
Works Department of Ontario. .Miss 
Tully Iiad been ill only a few months, 
being a victim of pernicious anaemia. 
.She pa.ssed away at St. John's hospi- 
tal, whither she had gone eight weeks 
iiKO for a rest, not thinking she was 
.seriously ill. 

"Miss Tully belonged to a disting- 
ulsed and gifted family, and early 
showed promise of developing as an 
iu-ti.st. After local study of art she 
pursued her course in London and Paris 
for several years, returning two years

home. ^ ' ■ — ■^ — 

"Wom»is,'#aiJ 'Intended, to perforin the

woman engaged In the business world 
is .shortening her life." 

The learned doctor ni.'iy be riKht, 
but there are thousands of women in

those depending on them must he sup-

A PRIVATE HIGH SCHOOL 



Doctors as Teacbera 

Dr. .lolin B. Murphy, nvIio Is tlio 
preaklcnt of the .American Medical As- 
sociation, which met recently at Los 
.-Vngeles, delivered an fldre.ss which 
is exciting- somf rnniment. I'r. 

.VIuriili>- a.sserted ih.u il:'- roason 
Iieo!)le are .«o easily deceived by 
qnacUs, or by men wliom the profes- 
.slon loolts upon as such. Is that these 
people are ready to give a reiisqin for 
their treatment. They do not make a 
•aecret of their manner of workinK- 
Their th^^ories may he false but tl-.L-y 
convini-e the puhlic that they are true 
HS well as that their treatment L-s ef- 
ficaciou.s. 

Doctors, on the other hand. ha|j 
during the last three centuries, de- 
manded of tlie patient and his friends 
a blind faith. The conseiiuence has been 
that many have turned from the phy.si- 
clan of who.se ways they knew nothing 
to the quack whom they Imagined they 
did understand. 

Dr. Murphy contends that the time 
lias now come when the medical profes- 
sion should take the public Into Us con- 
fidence. Ther.! .-should be. he thinks, a 
national council on health and public 
In.'Jlriictlon. U .should Ivy the business 
of this council to give the public Infor- 
mation In terms easily understood of 
the nature, cause, means of transmls- 
.<?lon and early slRns of disease. "HTisv 
much," says Dr. Murphy, "could th» 
mortality of the acute rurglcal diseases, 
the acute medicai ul.seases such as scar- 
let fever, diphtheria, pneumonia, etc.. 
and the chronic diseases such as cancer 
of the lip and the breast, and tuber- 
culosis, be reduced If the laity had In- 
Rtrtictlon from the profession as to 
their early recognition, tlie danper of 
delay and the line of action In their 
treatment." The speaker criticised the 
.inforniatkin whit-h now flnd.s Us way 
into the papers as sensational and in- 
accurate. 

From the point of view of women, 
who have most to do with tho care of 
the sick it scorns that there is much 
In the address worthy of consideration. 
In nine cases out of ten delay In send- 
ing for a physician is caused by Ignor- 
ance of the need for his services. If 
people generally could be taught when 
.lymptoms show thai: there Is danger 
the doctor would be call'->d In time. 
Whether or not such knowledge could 
be made public Is a question for the 
doctors lo decide. It is certain that any 
authoritative Information would be 
eagerly read and that newspapers would 
be glad to publish It. 

That there are no more zealous work- 
ers In tlie Holence of sanitation which 
will. In the en». It Is hoped, conquer 
many diseases, than the doctors, indi- 
cates that their reticence Is not owing 
to selfishness. The subject Is an Inter- 
esting one.

]'"our home runs from the choice deiiv- 
' cry of Heaver Fullerton, touted as one 
of Dugdale's finest mound artists and, 
in all. twelve safe binglea: Surely Bill' 
tloodman's lads were wearing their hat- 
ting clothes. They hadn't taken them 
off overnight, some enthusiastic fan 
brightly suggested. 

Probably It will be aeons before the 
lans see such another Innings as was 
that which opened the matinee. Tiie 
visitors fell for Pitcher Thor.sen's ."^low 
twisters, supported by splendid Held- 
ing,.ln order, and then tlie Victorians 
came to bat. A mere look at Goodman, 
(IS he swung waiting for a good one, 
was enough. The Giants went to jileces 
like a troupe of school boys presenting 
nn amateur theatrical pc-formance.. 

Bill was presented his base It was 
really with Ten Million's debut, after 
' his ' enforced holiday of Friday, that 
let loose the aeroplane. He bunted, Spen- 
cer made a poor tli'""w, bthI Goodman I 
liad reached t!ilrd when Ort recovered | 
the pill and winged it toward.^ Hues 
to cut him off. This also was an 111- 
.judged eftorc and jjermitted Goodman 
10 come homo. Mejanwhlle Million was 
t-aieiy roosting on the third bag. Kellar 
drove safely over Sues' head and Sni- 
ton added to the comedy of errors by 
iillowing it to go through him. Million 
was at the plate and Kellar on second. 
"Jockey" Ward added to the crowd's ex- 
citement, which now was at fever heat, 
by clouting safely which counted for 
the third run. When Brennan and Cleni- 
eentflon had whiffed it looked as thougl. 
the fun was over but Pitcher Fuller- 
ton, Just to give the occasion a titling 
climax, generously walked the ne.tt 
three and forced home the fourth tally. 
Bafaly Tucked Away 
After this there was little more tn 
he done. Victoria had the game safely 
tucked away and it was the third of 
the series. The tailenders had come from 
Viehind and tied the Giants for the 
lionors. 

' In the second stanza, to show that 
!;e iiftdn't f'irg.-itf*an hnw, Knllar tvallop- 
ed the ball out of the lot. Much cheer- 
ing and laughter among the bleacher- 
,ltes. As it happened Million, previous- 
ly, had got his second safety so two 
Kallopcd smilingly over the plate. Bren- 
nan laler came through with a neat two 
base hit Which, however, was' lost, 
riementaon hitting into a double. Then 
in the fifth It came again Ward being 
the slugger this time, lifting the horse- 
hide clear over the thirty-five foot wire 
fence. This was becoming so common 
as to give the Seattleltes another fit of 
•'biick fever" and Raymond fumbled an 
.easy chance that allowed Brennan a 
life. While he was caught at second 
l..eard and Spencer contributed to the 
error column and DeVogt was given 
transportatton, the nat result being 
Clementson's run. 

Once more B'uUerton got his In the 
seventh,' DeVogt'a homer with two man 
on »base« — Brennan, who got there with 
!i two bagger and Clenientson who walk- 
ad — waa j^ood iv three.. And. to.. the 
<?lg:htn. with Brennan on the sacks 
again, Clem came through with a re- 
Boundlng swat. It cut through the air 
with the speed of a bullet passed Klght- 
flelder Householder with 4. hum, aid al- 
lowed the big fe>ow to make the com- 
l)lote circuit. Bacauae thla was the only 
one of the »ix hortia runs that didn't 
dl§»ppear oveg the park fence It was 
something of a novelty a/id brought the 
man responsible appreciative applause. 
Meanwhile' tha Olants had be«n Jog- 
gting alon» trying hard to find Thor- 
.sen's slow balls. The home run by 
Bues — the flr.it he garnered In the week 
-and by Leard came' In the third and 
the ninth, -fortunately with the' bases 
( lear. Only In th« fifth did they man- 
aae to do any bunching. Then the sin- 
ulea of Leard. Householder and BUes 
v,erc good for one fairly earned run.

srotas 

One of the mofl remarkable events cf 
the past week has been the improve- 
„-^f -- t'Mi.,- -I 11.,:. hat. On Monday 
he drew a blank, on Tuesday there was 
that home run which will be long re- 
membered, on Wedresday It was a sin- 
gle on Thursday he dropped back, 
Friday there was a i'cme run and 
singles, and yesterday a home run and 
two bingles for four limes up. Not 
bad for one who was considered rather 
weak with the stick. 

But then all the boys have been hit- 
ting lately, I.>ook at "Jockey" Ward 
since he took Cocash's place. On Fri- 
day it was four for four and yesterday 
two for five, one of them being a home 
run. 

Ever since attention was drawn to 
the fact that Bues" batting was sluijip- 
ing, he has been hitting like a houee 
a'flre. He started on Thursday with 
three for live times at bnt, one of them 
■ a two bagger, Friday It was two for 
four and yesterday three fr ■ four, one 
of them a homer and tfiothcr good for 
two sacks. It only gf>2« t> ?now that 
these Muggers should nut bo disturbed 
when asleep. 

Brennan came here from tl;f> Twllleht 
League with a good reputation as a 
short atop but a poor batting average. 
If' he keeps up his present gelt he will 
be figuring high In both defifftincnts at 
the season's close. 

After all It is Clementson who has 
furnished one of t'le biggest iurprlu^s 
of the year to the Tans. He Is one of 
the most consi.st-^nt hitters on the local 
nine. In aim "Eddie" Householder 
made a bad mlHtake. While the local 
manager he figured that "Clem" -wasn't 
food enough to hold. Now fhey are 
looking for more like him. 

"Jftkey" Baumsarten .S'^t oft with the 
aeries here In good style. Unlike most 
"umpa" ho leaves many frionds. 

The Victoria-Seattle teams play off 
the draw todky <n Seattle. wniL-cmo is 
expected to pitch. 

Dugdale declares that Victoria la 
going to be the best ball to-wn In the 
series with the exception ot Seattle 
next year. 

There wire a couple of «tar catohea 
In the field yesterday. Crulckshanke 
rdbbed Goodman In one that was about 
to hit the fence In the fourth and Mil- 
lion tnmed the tables on Cruckahankja 
In tha flft:».

The signing of articles by Packey Mc- 
Farland and Matt Wells, the English 
lightweight champion, to box ten rounds 
In Milwaukee the last week In Aacnat. 
has Stirred up unusual interest. The 
weight. 185 at 3, suits both men down 
to tlie ground and will have them in 
splendid trim. But the statement that 
they will weigh 142 pounds or there- 
about whan they enter the rln* la un- 
warranted. McFarland has never weigh- 
ed an ounce more than 138 pounda In 
any bout, he Insists, and there la reason 
to believe him. He Inaista.^that If ha 
weighed more than HI he wouW loae hU 
wonderful speed, hence much of tola 
devemeaa. Wells can tip the beam 
right now at 1S7, he declares, and whila 
in training he has never exceeded 140. 
In the opinion of ring axperta McFar- 
land will outpdlnt the Brltlah champion 
with ease. Packey Is too faat on hla 
feet to allow WaUs, with hla compara- 
tively slow attack, to reach him. Fur- 
thermore, It la believed that 'Wella' lack 
of footwork, which Is consplcuoua. will 
make It Impossible for him to avoid Mc- 
Farland's rapid lefts unless he covera 
up a la Leach Croae. But even If Mc- 
Farland lands the greater number ot 
blows It la doubtful If he can infti^t aer- 
loua dama«a, aa Wella la won4aifully 
strong and can atand up under a heavy 
fire. It la believed that Wella' only 
chance to win declalvely la at cloaa 
quarters, an4 aa McFarland seldom 
boxea that way tha Snglitihman will 
have hla hands full.

Let "Stamina" Be Your Chief 
Requirement in a Motor Car 



jrj Y KRASON of the peculiar rigor of Canada's 
m^ climate and the preponderance of bad road con- 
"^^ ditions in this country, Canadian motorists de- 
mand cars that will "stand up" under heaviest tests of 
road, weather and use. 



McLaughlin Buick 

- ' " " I I ■' " ■ ■ " i i 

-'The Car Thai Canada Has Selected" 



More and more are 
Canadians coming to 
realize that ".'Stamina" 
is what is needed in a 
car — above everything 
clac. This realization is 

revealed in the continu- 

ally increasing favor 

shown the McLaughlin-Buick line — the sturdiest and 

most powerful cars ever offered, and, withal, the most" 
graceful. .. .. . ., ^ 

So widely are these cars in use througfitmt the Do- 
minion today that it may be now said, without exaggera- 
tion, that - Canada has set upon the product of 'he 
McLaughlin factory her unequivocal seal of approval. 

Why, do you suppose, are there more McLaughlins in 
use to<i!ay between Halifax and Vancouver than any 
otqer car? ' 

Wc can tell you. ' 

Of course it is partly because the name "McLaughlin** 
ever since we attained prominence as carriage-makers, 
has always stood for "one grade only, and that is th* 
best" . 



But beyond even reputation as a factor in our motor 
car success is the fact that our cars possess, in a degree 
that applies to no other cars, the great Canadian require- 
ment, "stamina" — stamina to withstand the strain of the 
roughest journey — stamina to carry you anywhere you 

__^ \ want to go and back, 

without mishap — sta- 
mina to pass fellow- 
motorists on the road, 
whether the going is 
good or bad. 



A good example of 
all this is the sturdy, 
powerful Model 21 — a splendidly-proportioned five-pas- 
senger touring car that sells for $2250 f.o.b. Victoria. 

This car, together with" our full line, is on Stfiibit at 
our showrooms. You owe it to yourself to see it before 
making your purchase. 

Havinif seen it, there's sure to be a request from you 
for a demonstration — which we'll cheerfully furnish. And » 
that demonstration will surely dispel whatever doubts 
may linger in your mind as to this car's absolute and 
complete supremacy at the price.

a succession of trained workers will

the parent society has beer? so careful 
in weeding out Inlerior appU'-ants th.it 
there will b« some difficulty in supply-

Important as Is this beginning on

Editor of "The Colonizer" 
Claims to Have Brouglit 
'hO,onO People to Dominion 



_(AVJL 



ITTI 



. i-TToon Yiactrc 



A journalist who claims the distinc- 
tion of having settled more people In 
Canada during the past fifteen years, 
than any othei- individual, was a guest 
at the Dominion hotel yesterday in tho 
per-son of Mr. V. W. l-"relr, editor of The 
Colonizer, of London. England. Mr. 
l-'relr Is personally conducting a party 
of Kngltisli people, to different parts of 
the west, which left Montreal on July 
5, and arrived In this city a few day.s 
ago. The party will continue to Prince 
Rupert next' week, and from there will 
go to wherever they decide to settl?. 
Mr. l-'relr leaves the party at Prince 
Rupert, and relurns east, leaving for 
Kngland aometires during Septerrfber. 
iie has been conducting these parties of 
Kngliali .seltler.s. to tlii.s country each 
y*.Hr for the past fifteen yca.rs, and dur- 
ing that' time ciaims lo liave . brought 
close to one-quarter of a million people 
to Caliada. . „, • 

Mr Frolr say;; that at their onb-eH in 
London there arc more than 4 0,000 let- 
ters of enquiry as to investment and 
settlement In the west, received each 
year, and that he had taken up tills work 
as a business each r;uramcr. LctterH are 
received from every country In the 
world, and tho Colonizer boasts of being 
the hPHt informed colonial journal in tho 



world, having the largest circulation of 
any paper of its class. ■• 
"The people who I brought out to tnls 
countrv last year," said Mr. Freir, "rep- 
resented capital of $500,000." There were 
160 families settled in British Columbia 
la.<it year, and the lowest individual am- 
ount of capital represented was $2,500, 
-»n.l th» highest aaS.OQO." -Wc. Frelr^haa 
boen instrumental in f.ji'mSr.g s ccoR- 
Izor club, wbich at tne preseul l>.i'« ..as 
a membprshlp of close upon 3,000, ex- 
tending into fiO dlftprent countries. 
Keed. Por Protection 
Speaking on current issues in Eng- 
land, Mr. Frclr said thnt Kngland woiUd 
be no good commercially, until she ob- 
tained some sort of protection on manu- 
factured goods. "AVe are on the down 
grade, because of r«.-civing no profits 
on our goods. The turnover each year 
is increasing, but Hio majority of biisl- 
ness are unremunerative at home. TNe 
can get more in this country for our 
goods than we get over there. We want 
our markets protected against "dumped 
goods. We have plenty of resources, and 
the same advantages that brought us to 
the front will keep us there. We have 
no trusts whatever in the old country, 
hut the American trusts come over there, 
and can swamp our markets just when- 
«ver they see lit to do so. Mr Carnegie 
can sell steel c.beupci' In Sheffield thar. 
ho can in Pittsburg. It_ is just a ques- 
tion of surplus pro duct. " 

^s a iwUt of the recent conference 
between Mayor Leo of New Westmin- 
ster and officials of the B. C. E. R. Co.. 
plans for the MiUslde tram line exten- 
Kion are now complete. 

The Coldv.'ator hotel at Merrltt has 
been sold to Calgari'ans for ?S000.

"The captain told the niate,*and the 
mate told the crew, and the crew told 
me, so I know it must be true. There's 
many a funny thingf that happen.s on a 
trip. Here's a Utile yarn I heard 
aboard the ship." This was the song 
sung by the steward of the Harrison 
one of the weirdest sea yarns told for 
one of the wlerdeet sea yarns told for 
some time — the tale of the ship's cat 
On board the Candidate la a common 
brown tabby cat which sports a blue 
ribbon about Its neck, and If anyone of 
the aailormen of the ateamer is aaked 
about the .cat be aaya; 

"We 'aven't ' ad a single bloomln' 
day of bad luck from the time we picked 
up the little Kaffir and his tabby, and 
we are going to hang on to 'in as long 
as we can." 

The seamen then expand and this is 
their tale in brief: "When the ves- 
sal was cruising of the coast of Eftst 
Africa before her transfer to these 
waters, and waa off Durban, she came 
acroas the cat and a half-breed Kaffir 
boy tied to a spar. Both had been adrift 
arouod the Indian ocean for a week and 
Invaatigatlon proved tl)at the boy was 
the only peraon that eacaped from a 
Oerman merchant ship wrecked off the 
8h ores- of thfc InUiaA ocean. The crew 
of the vessel lind mutinied, and mur- 
dered the captain and other officers of 
the ahlp. In attempting to navigate 
the vessel, however, they had been 
driven on the rocka by a strong nor'- 
wester. When the ship went to plecea" 
the crew were drowned. 

The Kaffir boy caught a drifting spar, 



arrived at Honolulu Tuesday, has been 
chartered by Davies & Fohon. Rhe will 
load on the Sound and at British Co- 
lumbia for Australian ports.

The D.WIS "PERFECTION" loc Cii^ar c...-,t a dollar, :t 
would be cheap to the smoker who delights in, a MILD AND 
FRAGRANT CIGAR. 

"PERFECTION" is not a "stroke of good luck," « 
"chance" or a "caprice." 

IT WAS THOUGHT OUT, BEFORE IT WA» 
BROUGHT OUT. 

There was a demand for a better toc Cigar— and S. 
DAVIS & SONS. WITH 50 YF..\RS EXPERIENCE, were 
able to meet the demand. 

Ability and e.xperience met, and the result was the "PER- 
FECTION" IOC Cigar. 

A blend of the world',- choicest tobaccos.

unions have broiigln much sunshine in- 
to the world. The good that they iiave 
brought has been varied. The good 
that they can do is limitless. The.se 
agencies for alleviating the misery 
that abounds in the world can never 
be destroyed. — Samuel Gompsr-s.

An investigation made by Dp. ,A. H. 
Stewart, of Lawton, Okla., for a New 
York medical organization In regard to 
the comparative longevity of men and 
women finds that the women excel the 
men, 2500 of the 4000 centenarians in 
the country being women. According 
to his Investigations men are more like- 
ly to be geniuscF!. but there are fewer 
cranks and idiots Hinong ilie women. He 
al.so finds that women do not die un- 
e.xpertedly as often, are not bald and 
endure more heat than men. 

By an order of Secretary Nagel of 
the Department of Commerce and La- 
bor, assignments of salaries of em- 
ployes to loan companies is prohibited. 
The practice of loan companies in the 
past in tippeaillng to Government oHl- 
clals to aid them in the collection of 
loans has been in existence for a num- 
ber of years, and has worked not only 
to the disadvantage of the Department,

This is not a gamble nor a lottery propo- 

.'^ition. 

There is a noticeable absence of every 

element of chance. 

Todav. a limited numljer of shares is be- 
fore th(^ public in The British Pacific Coal 
Co., Ltd. at 50c the share. 

These sliares have a par vaUic of St each. 

On the morning of August 17th the price 
will be either advanced to 750 or ^i a snare 

This means that those who buy in at 50c, 
the present price, have a holding on the 
17th worth 75c or $1, at least a clear profit 
of 25c a sharc^ is guaranteed. 

No application will be received for less 
than 100 shares, which are available on 
such easy ttrms as loc a share cash with 
application and the remainder in three 
equal monthly installments. 

To buy 100 shares, the cash payment is 
$10. 

The balance of $.|0 is payable in three 
equal monthly payments. You can handle 
1,000 shares with $100 cash and in twenty 
days' time your profit will be at least $250, 
before your third installment falls due the 
stock will be selling readily at $1. 

The shares in The British Pacific Coal 
Co., Ltd., represent a proposition to you 
which at the same time embraces the max- 
imum security and also the grcates,t pos- 
sible profits and forms a natural resource 
proposition. 

Coal is as staple as gold. 
The success and ()rosperity of "a nation 
depend on its fuel supply, its coal wealth, 
as well as the transportation facilities and 
money available to develop its many in- 
dustries. 



It is a conceded fact that so .soon as The 
Grand Trunk Pacific main line has been 
constructed to Prince Rupert city, its Pa- 
cific terminus, in less than 18 months' time, 
the thou.sands of tons of freight which will 
pass through the Pacific seaport and on 
board ship to all the ports on the Pacific 
Coast and to the Orient, must create an 
enormous market for fuel. 

i ills luc: rviit iinl 1.1111 1^J■ '•' .....^...» ..^... 

the mines nearest at hand. 

These mines are to be found on Graham 
Island, which is immediately opposite 
Prince Rupert city — 80 miles from Prince 
Rupert city by boat is situated the now well 
known and famous coal property controlled 
by The British Pacific Coal Co., Limited, 
which embraces an area of coal lands in ex- 
tent 8320 acres. 

This condition of affairs means, there- 
fore, that those who are directly interested 
in The British Pacific Coal Co., Ltd., have 
within their holding a proposition which is 
destined to be the most important factor in 
the fuel market of the Pacific Coast. 

It being an all-water haul from the prop- 
erty of The British Pacific Coal Co., which 
fronts on Skidegate Inlet, about 80 miles 
from Prince Rupert city, the coal may be 
laid down at this great Pacific port at the 
minimum cost. 

Readers know that Prince Rupert is 600 
miles nearer Japan than Vancouver. Prince 
Rupert will surely be a great coaling sta- 
tion for the Pacific liners. 

There is no reasonable doubt in the minds 
of shrewd, far-seeing business men that The 
British Pacific Coal Co. can be anything 
else but one of the greatest coal shippers in 
the North American continent. 



This is not a coal prospect proposition, 
but ratlicr a working property. 

The British Pacific Coal Go's shares are 
a bargain at 50c (the par value being $1) 
alongside many coal prospecting proposi- 
tions which are being offered to the public 
from time to time at smaller prices. 

British Pacific Coal will be a household 
word throughout the western portion of ■ 
this country, since the people will use an-,, 
thracite, where obtain^ible. in preference to" 
soft coal, which carries so much smoke and 
ash. 

We have the engineers' reports to show 
the interested reader, prospectuses em- 
bracing details of the proposition and news-, 
paper reports of interviews with satisfied,, 
shareholders and officials who visited the 
property. 

$10 in cash is all you require to take up 
100 shares of The British Pacific Coal Co., 
Ltd., while the price is 50c a shau-e and 100 
shares is the smallest application that will 
be received by the trustee, T. R. Morrow. 

Mr. Morrow is well and favorably known 
throughout British Columbia, having re- 
sided'in the province for 25 years, is \vell 
known in the city of Vancouver to business 
and financial men, as a man who will guard 
the interests of the public in his capacity 
of trustee- 
Remember that on the morning of the 
17th of August, the price of the shares as 
held by Mr. Morrow will be advanced to 
75c or $1 a share, and that there is a limited 
block available from him today at 50c a 
share. 

Send in your application at once. 
Make your cheque or money order pay- 
able to the order of T. R. Morrow, trustee. 
Further information may be secured by a 
personal call or by mail.

Why 



Some Extraordinary Things Have Been Done to 
Accomplish This Result— Come See What They Are 



The above is an illustration of the HUDSON "33' 
1912 Tourinq- Car. There are three other models— a 
Torpedo, long, low and snappy in appearance— a 
Roadster, handsome and comfortable, and a Mile-a- 
IMinnte car, fast enough for any amateur contest. 

This cut indicates as well as can be done by 
picture the great beauty of the car, which for the 
pa^t vear has'" been ihc most talked about automobile 
in \ni erica. It is impo.'^sible to show by drawing or 
photograph, all the improvements that have been 
added to the 1QI3 model. 

The best wav to iinderstand why it is a greater 
value than was'tlie 191 1 car, is to know what was 
done to produce that result. By teihng ym i'"'^^; YJ^ 
can appreciate thi. luw value more than would be 
possible either bv illu=.lration .^r by description. 

The Engineering IHoard -I the PIUDvSON Motor 
Car Companv is made up ^i the largest number of 
experts ever" employed l)y any one manufacturer. 
These men are specialists in many different branches 
'■^f automobile engineering. At the head of this start 
of experts is HoWard H. Coffin, the man responsible 
for the HUDSON "33." 

Before this board of specialists is brought every 
suggestion for the improvement and betterment ot 
HUDSON cars. Each of these experts has won his 
way by the work he has done. Each man knows 
sometlving which others don't know. Each has done 
something which others have not done. 

OWNERS HAVE HELPED 

We have hundreds of letters from owners telling 
their experience with the •'33-" ^^'l^'^t they reported 
was tabulated and so when w^rk was started, wc 
had accurate information upon which to base our i)lans 
for the 1912 car. 

Each suggestion was thoroughly considered by 
the Board of Engineers. Then Mr. Coffin instructed 
these specialists \o do what they could to make the 
1912 car a greater value than w^as that of 191 i. Each 
■ man was assigned to some particular work. One was 
instructed to add to the beauty of the car. Anothcr 
devoted his time to working out ideas that would add 
to the convenience the car would afford to passengers. 

WENT TO EUROPE FOR IDEAS 

One man went to Europe to get ideas. He visited 
tl-,c leading factories there and attended the great 
Paris and London Automobile Shows. He Avanted 
to see how makers abroad were building their cars. He 
came back with a trunk full of notes. 

A specialist on carburction went into the labora- 
tories of the largest carburetor manufacturer and with 
the experts there worked out an improvg^l system, 
which has resulted in greater power and economy for 
the motor. So exhaiuitive .were his tests that he called 
in the chemists and experts of the Standard Oil Com- 
pany and had their assistance in dctermming what 
was needed for obtaining an increased efficiency from 
the ever decreasing quality of gasoline. 



Another man— trained by long experience for that 
special Kind 01 woik — g^vc lu.-? clcvwCv... ..j ....c--- s 
the spring action of the car. He tested many types ot 
springs. He drove cars over every kind of roads, lie 
exerimented with other cars to learn any advantages 

they might have. , • • 

The expert on factory management spent his time 
in the plant organizing his men, teaching them to 
build better. The man who had made a reputation for 
himself as a designer of special machinery worked out 
ideas for increasing factory efficiency in that direction. 

No work couUf have been more complete than that 
which these men did. 

ALL SUBMITTED TO EXPERTS 

Then Mr. Coffin called them all into session and lor 
days the suggestions of each expert was submitted to 
the consideration of his associates. In this way many 
additional ideas were brought out. No suggestion 
was accepted that did not meet with the unanimous 
approval of the Engineering Board. U there was any 
doubt about the value of any feature, it was tried out 
by actual tests on cars built especially for that purpose. 

Then the first 1912 car was built and all the ideas 
adopted were proven in a service ten times more severe 
than any one would ever think of demanding of his 

car. , . , 

The result of all that careful, accurate planning and 
testing under the inspiration of Howard E. Coffin, is 
the KJ'1'2 HUDSON "33-" 

YET THERE WAS LITTLE CHANGE 
You might conclude from this that the car is total- 
ly different^ from that of last year. As a matter of fact 
however, there has been little change in the essentials 
of its design. In a few places the simplicity of the 
original model has been made even more simple. A 
few more parts have been eliminated and a great deal 
has been accomplished in the way of smoother, quieter 
operation. The 191 1 "sS' is famed as being as quiet 
as any car ever built. 

This year sound has been made even less notice- 
able. . . 
It is difficult to compare the new car with the origi- 
nal. But you can at a glance at the car itself, note 
some of the changes that have been made. 

The equipment is of a much better grade. If you 
Avill ride in the two models you will observe the 
greater motor flexibility of the 19 12 car. ' You can 
see an increased value 'in the quality of upholster- 
ing, in the higher grade painting, but you cannot so 
easily appreciate the improvements that have been 
made in the quality of materials, in the fineness of the 
metals and the character of the workmanship. 

WIDELY DIFFERENT FROM ALL OTHER 

CARS 

The above comparisons have all been made with 
the 191 1 HUDSON "33." 

It would not be so difficult to show the grel 
value of the present model if it were considered in 
connection with any other automobile that you can 
buy under $2500. 



Last year the HUDSON ":>,X' established such 
a mark for its simplicity, power, sturdiness and gener- 
al value that it won its way wherever buyers gave 
close attention to its details. ^ _ ^ ^, ^^ 

TcopUt in all sections bought the HUDSON "33 
l)ecause it was designed by Howard E. Coffin. Most 
of these buyers were i)ersons who had owned cars of 
his earlier models. They knew from what he had 
done before what to expect from his latest car. 'Ihe 
first day the HUDSON "33" ^^'^s put on sale orders 
were taken bv dealers throughout the country for 
087 cars. These were bona-fide sales that were made 
without, in most cases, even a demonstration. 

2.000 CARS OVERSOLD 

At the close of the season there were orders on 
hand for more than 2.000 in excess of the number we 
could build. bA-en before a single 1912 model was 
shown dealers had deposits in hand from their custo- 
mers who thus had assured themselves an early 
deliverv in the latest model. ' . 

These are important indications of what car it is 
best for you to choose. Nothing quite so thoroughly 
shows the value uf an automobile as the way the pub- 
lic takes to it. Its sales in any one locality would 
indicate very little. Consider what it has done 
throuo-hout the countrv, however, and you have the 
net expression of many buyers. HUDSON cars are 
successfully operated over every kind of road. Buyers 
chose the "33" because it proved to be the car best 
suited for all needs. As all sections are using the 
"33" it shows it is ideal for every requirement. 
WORLD WIDE DEMAND. 
The world wide demand for the HUDSON "33" — 
and that statement is emphatically true— is a positive 
proof that it more nearly approaches the i'deal car than 
was ever before offered at less than $2500. 

We urge all who arc competent to do so, to thor- 
oughly investigate every detail of the HUDSON "33." 
But wc caution those who do not intimately under- 
stand automobiles, their needs and the development 
that has recently been made in the way of simplicity, 
not to attempt to judge values in that manner. 

Nothing is quite so dangerous as a little knowl- 
edge. It deceives the buyer and often results in his 
.selecting not the best but the poorest car to be had 
for the money. 
ALL MAKERS GIVE QUALITY— NOT ALL 
THOUGH, HAVE ENGINEERING 
CLEVERNESS 
We believe all makers are building the best cars 
they are able to build for the money. Competition 
guarantees that. But willingness to furnish good 
quality does not assure that that is being done. Skill, 
experience and an efficient organization is necessary. 
Ml engineers do not possess the same degrees of^ 
■ IS-*>Cr Wcperience. Capital will? buy modern^ 

machinery. It will secure the besfOf materials, but 
it will not'always get the best engineering brains. It 
cannot even get the best out of the brains it can 



employ. Genius works only when it is associated with 
geniu*; and workmen do their best only when directed 
by a recognized luaster. ,,7- 1 

Design is the basis of all good value. Without 
that, the car is only partly right. All experienced 
automobilists know that. Everyone in the trade 
knows Howard E. Coffin to be the greatest designer 
of automobiles this country has ever produced. Every 
one in the business knows equally as well that the 
organization which controls the HUDSON Motor 
Car Company has built all the cars Mr. Coffin has 

designed. r r^ cc 

Each of these cars was a leader untib Mr. Coffin 
made it less desirable by the production of a car more 
modern and of consequently greater value. 

Millions of dollars have been put into HUDSON 
cars by experienced buyers, just because of their confi- 
dence in the designer, the engineers who are his assis- 
tants and the company and organization that is build- 
ing the cars. These buyers have asked for no details. 
Expert as some of them are, they have not depend- 
ed upon their own judgment so much as they have 
been influenced bv their knowledge of the men who 
are responsible fo'r the HUDSON "33." 

CHOOSE YOUR CAR THAT WAY /» 

If you accept that suggestion and then look for a 
car of reputation, just remember that standards of 
values change and that consequently the car you 
thought well of a few months ago, may now be selling 
at a lower price because the more modern HUDSON 
"33" has established a new era in motor car designing. 
You will naturally want the latest. Then don't be 
influenced too strongly by a low price, or by the state- 
ment that the motor is bigger, or other claims that 
are intended to obscure the main point of simplicity. 
If your car has all the power you will ever need to 
use, that is all you need to consider. If a car can be 
obtained at a hundred dollars less than that at which 
you can get the HUDSON "33," then look for the 
comparative simplicity of the two cars. 

If you choose the HUDSON "33" you will Have 
satisfaction in knowing that you have the car which 
everyone admits to be the leader of its class — to be the 
one advanced car of the past three years. 

WHY YOU SHOULD NOT DELAY 
You have your choice of many automobiles. The 
most desirable cars will be taken first. Last year's 
popularity indicates a heavy demand for this greater 
value of the 1912 model. 

There is a limit to the number of cars the factory 
can produce. Since 2000 individuals were disappoint- 
ed last .spring at not being able to get the "33," what 
may we not expect this fall? 

By taking a "33" now you can use it all summer, 
fall and winter and still have an up-to-date car in the 
spring. Many Hudson dealers have booked orders 
.for the ^912 mqAel even ^before they knew its deUils. 
Wc advise immediate action if you are to get prompt 
delivery of the one advanced car of the past three 
years.

AuguKi -" liial after that date no 
further names can be recelve<1, 

It is not of course known how 
thoroughly the enumerators have 
covered the ground, but there is 
no doubt, judging by former experi- 
ences, that a con,«lderahl« number 
of people will probably be omit- 
ted from the count unless they 
come forward now and register their 
names. It is scarcely necessary to 
say that it Is most Important that 
this city should show the population 
\>hlch it Ik entitled to show and 11 
would indeed be a matter for regret 
that owing to numbers being misse4 
by the offlciaH the city should fall 
short of its proper quota. This is 
not to be taker, by any means as 
;;. vpllectiou on the capacity of the 
said offieiaiP t" carry out the work, 
but it Is a well recognized fact 
that under the wysteni In vogue it 
Is impossible to obtain complete and 
accurate returnc. It is therefore 
hoped that all citizens and residents 
of this city whose names have not 
yet been taken will lose no lime 
in notifying Mr. Thomas J. Hick.

REMAINS^SEPARATE 

Propoeal to Join XTnlted Mine 'WorkerB 

Xa Voted Down by 'W^eatera reder- 

atlon of lUnere 

BUTTE, Mont., July 29.— By a vote 
of 200 to 95. the Western Federation of 
Miners. defeated a resolution fa- 
voring the surrender of the charter of 
the Western Eederation and as a whole 
going into the United Mine Workers' 
organization. President Moyer de- 
clared that a vote for that resolution 
would be a vote to disband the fcdera- 
lion and lose its identity in the body 
of the United Mine Workers. Atten- 
tion was called by Mr. Moyer to the 
fact that the federation is affiliated 
with and has a charter of the American 
Federation of Labor, and thereby also 
has an affiliation with the United Mine 
Workers through the connection of the 
latter body with the American Federa- 
tion. 



The vote was taken by rollcall, 200 
delegates voting against the propo.sal 
and 95 in favor of it. The supporters 
of President Moyer In the convention 
were much elated over the result, as 
the Issue was clear cut as between the 
supporters and opponents of the admin- 
istration, and a naro'uer of delegates 
predicted that Mr. Moyer would be re- 
elected president.

there ought to be hundreds of them where now 
there are only scores. Some of the best effects 
in this line are to be seen homes where the 
available space is very limited. The flowers 
that are most easily cultivated for this purpose 
are nasturtiums, lobelias, red geraniums, 
Shasta daisies, and so on. A variety of colors 
adds greatly to the effect. White, yellow, red 
and blue make a very attractive combination. 
The white can be got from the daisy, the yel- 
low from the nasturtium, the red from the 
geranium, and the blue from the lobelia. These 
make a very pretty combination in a small box

Not for nianv years has such a dramatic 
sensation been created as by the niystenous 
disappearance of Lady Constance Foljainbe, 
half sister to the Earl of Liverpool, a few 
hours before she was to have been married 
Bridcjrroom. clergy, congregation, were all 
vvaitiiK^ in St. iVters" Church, Eaton scjuare. 
1 ondon S. W ., but, to the utter consternation 
of cvcrvhodv. no bride appeared to take up her 
,>lace before tlie altar. Afessengcrs were sent 
off hurriedlv to the Earl of Liverpool s resi- 
dence in order to inquire what had happened 
to the bride; friends were communicated with, 
but all to no effect. No trace of Lady Con- 
stance l<oliambe could be found. She had gone 
out ■ few hours before the wedding, appar- 
entlv on a shopping exi)edition, and from that 
moment her movements were unknown. 

Wlicn tliis painful information was earned

of \VhitwelI-on-the-HUL Yorkshire, who had 
undergone the ordeal of waiting over an hour 
and a^half for the bride who did not put in an 
appearance. For the remainder of the day 
speculation was rife as to what had b clallen 



the matter. All the detail.-i that are known to 
the public so far are given below. 
Waiting at the Church. 

The i)rospective bridegroom arrived at the 
church at a quarter to two with his best man. 
'i'he officiating clergyman, the Rev. the Hon. 
Reginald Adderley. vicar of Parkstone, Dorset, 
and brother of Lord Norton, was in attend- 
ance and everything was in readiness for the 
ceremony at two o'clock, the hour fixed. As- 
sembled within the church were four brides- 
maids — Lady Rosamond Foljambe fsL-^ter ol 
tiie bride). Miss Foljambe. Miss Evelyn I'on- 
sonby, and Mis Violet Ricketts. They wore 
charming dresses of .sprigged muslin, two be- 
ing in pale pink, one in blue, and one in mauve. 
Their girtlles were of the .^amc shade as their 
dresses while Lheir large straw hats were 
trimmed with bows of ribbon to match. Miss

also present, and Master Geoffrey and Master

had occurred. These w^ere to some extent set 
at rest late in the evening. by a statement pub- 
lished bv Lady Constance's family m the effect 
that she was'safe and well. No clue to her 
whereabouts, however, was disclosed. 

Next day Lady Constance was variously re- 
ported to be in Yorkshire and on the Continent. 
Rut it was not until Thursday that the secret 
of her disappearance was revealed. She was 
then discovered to be staying with a girl friend 
in Paris. At 12.15 ]).m. on the day of her wed- 
ding she left the Earl of Liverpool's London 
house on the pretext of- posting a letter. She 
was then wearing a round, white straw hat 
trimmed with roses, a brown tailor-made dress, 
and a long grev travelling coat. She went to 
Charing Cross. Avhcre she booked for 1; aris,

dence of a friend, but. not finding her in, drove

The choristers waited with them near the 
w^est entrance to lead the bridal procession to 
the altar. Lord Liverpool was to have escorted 
the bride up the church, and Susan, Countess 
of Liverpool, to have given her (laughter away. 
A company of 150 friends had gathered within 
the sacred blind "hg, among them bciTrg-d^^nrd— 
and Lady Midleton the Dowager Lady Grant, 
the Hon, Mrs. F. Ponsonby. Lady Alice Fol- 
jambe, si.ster of the bride.' Mrs. George Fol- 
jambe, Captain and .Mrs. Le Strange ^Ialone, 
and Colonel and Mrs. Acheson. several of 
whom had travelled from Yorkshire to attend 
the wedding. 

There was no hint of the dramatic denoue- 
ment that was to come. The l)ridegroom, whri 
• is the vicar of \'\ b.itweii-on-the-lliil Yoik- 
shire, was chatting with his friends, smilir.g 
happily. Two o'clock struck, but the jirover- 
bial privilege of brides to be late cau.sed no 
misgivings. Once a stir of interest passed 
through the congregation, but it was only some 
belated guests. Minute MiccceiUMl minute, but 
still the bride was absent. .\ subdued hum 
of conversation arose in the pews, liy a quarter 
l)ast two a grownig irrijiression ot uTicasmer-s 
had reached a climax. Some hazarded the sug- 
gestion that the right lime for the wedclmg 
was half-past two and not two o'clock, 'rii--^. 
bridegroom, near the altar, was pali)ably ill at 
ease now. He spoke in a low tone to his 
best man Dr. follv, and then the pair held a 
crmsultation wi"th Canon Adderley. .More than 
once thev glanced eagerly at the great door of 
the church. Lady Constance was otill absent. 



Nor was there any sign of the Earl of Liver- 
pQol, her half-brother, who was waiting at his 
house to escort Ladv Constance io the church. 
The pretence that all was well no longer held. 
Men looked from their watches to the door, 
women carried on subdued conversation in 
whispers. .\ mes.^enger was sent in a motor- 
car to 44. Grosvcnor-gardens, the house of the 
Earl of Liverpool. 

No Weddnig. ^^j^^ ^ 
In a few minutes he returned and whis- 
pered something to a little family group in 
the aisle. The pale face of the bridegrooiu grew 
paler still, and he staggered a little Someone 
put out a supporting hand, and he was gently 
led to the door and escorted back to his hotel. 
In a whisi)er the news ])assed through the con- 
gregation that there would be no wedding that 
(lay. It was within a few minutes of three 
o'clock. -No marriage could take place after 
that hour, and it was useless waiting, though

struck, hoping against hope. At Lord Liver- 
pool's house there was also consternation. No 
one had seen Lady Constance leave, and the 
first news of her disappearance was "at a qtiar- 

ter j>ast twelve, when a maid who went to her 
room found that she was absent. A hurried 
— »eaP€J4-Avas-«- T a dc v^itli no result. Th 
servant said that :;he liad seen Lady Const^ncr 
at Victoria Station shortly after mid-day. At 
tiic house as at the church all was ready for 
the celebration of the wedding. The wedding 
breakfast was laid and all preparations were 
complete for a joyous gathering on the return 
from the church. But instead of laughter there 
was gloom, and a dreary silence reigned over 
the household. 



It was elicited th.at Lady Constance Fol- 
jambe came down to breakfast as usual in the 
morning. She was quite cheerful and appar- 
ently in her usual good spirits. She went rtut 
alone about mid-day. and was expected back 
to dre.ss for the wedding. > 

Lc^rd Liverpool, wiio had been waiting in 
the house to take Lady Constance to the 
church, and her mother, the Dowager Countess 
_.^_f T ;,^..,^..»f-,c5i c3.U5.ed a search to l.>e made in 
every dir-ection. .\ constant stream of visitors 
arrived at Grosvcn<M- gardens to offer their 
help, but all efforts resulted in nothing. In- 
(juirie.•^ were even made at the hospitals, for 
it was thought that she might have been in- 
jured in a street accident. They were fruit- 
less and the only possible solutions left were 
that Ladv Constance had either lost her mem- 
orv or had exercised the privilege of her sex 



and changed her mind at the eleventh hour. 
Later in the day Lord Liverpool made tlie 
statement that he had received ? messp^e slat- 
ing that Lady Constance Foljambe .was cpiite 
safe and sound, and that she had simply 
changed her mind. She had left London liy 
train, but her destination or whereabouts were 
not disclosed. 

On the following day what was at first l)c- 
lievcd to be a clue as' to Lady Constance's 
movements"()n the day'i)ii whicii 'she should, 
have l)een married came from Kirkham .\bbey. 
the Yorkshire village where her mother, the 
PJowager Countess of Liverpool, resides. The 
iitiie fiaughter of a signaiman iiaiiic<i Shaw 
told licr parents on Monday evening that she 
had seen Lady Constance in a dining-car ex- 
press to Scarborough as it passed through 
Kirkham Al)bey Station about half-past five. 
Shaw, wlio ha([ not heard of the hitch in the 
wedfiing arrangements. contradicted , his 
daughter, telling her she must have been mis-

her honeymoon. The child, however, inaia.- 
tained that it was L^ady Constance she had 
seen. The stationmaster stated next day that 
as the express was composed mainly of dining- 
cars with large plate windows, it would be pos- 
sible for anyone to recognize a familiar face 
in th6 tfalHi ' esnectaliv as tr ains decrca.^c ^tcr 
speed at Kirkham . Abbey ^onfcg<5iiat^ 
in the line. 

No contradiction of this report cotild be ob- 
tained at Scarborough, where Lady Constance 
has relations and many friends, and the sub- 
seijueiit discovery of Lady Constance in Paris 
tends to point to ilie fact that the rci)ort wa? 
unfounded. 

The wedding dress was made at vScarbor- 
ough, and Lady Constance Foljam\ic visited 
her <lressmaker there on the Friday before the 
wedding for the final fitting. She gave instruc- 
tions that the gown was to be despatched to the 
iCarl of Liverpool's residence in London. Tlie 
wedding firess was of ivory crej^e de chine, 
trimmed with old Limerick lace, which Lady 
Constance supi^licd. and which had belonged 
to her family. It was a short dress just reach- 
ing to t'ne grfjund. wilti >aUii ariucrsKirt, anci 
the vest was of tucked net. 

The Rev. H. Hawkins has left the Gros- 
venor Hotel, London, where he was staying, 
but his plans are unknown. On the day Lady 
Constance disappeared her description was 
furnished to the police by the family Avith a 
recjuest that it should be circulated, but it was 
almost immediately withdrawn. 



In reply to a letter asking for an official 
statement on the subject. Lord Liverpool, Lady 
Constance Foljambe's half-brother, writes: — 
"I regret that I have no information that I 
can give beyond saying that I and every mem- 
ber of my family should be very glad if the 
matter could be allowed to rest. It is only 
giving intense worry to us all. The subject is 
solely one of private interest." 

Lady Constance Foljambe is twenty-six 
N'^ars oldand one of five ^fiisters. Her eldest 
sister. Lady Edith Foljambe, married Major 
D'.Xrcy Legard. of the 17th Lancers, in i«x>8, 
and another sister, Lady Mabel Foljambe, mar- 
ried Dr. William Woodburn, of Theale, near 
Reading. (Jne exploit by Lady Constance Fol- 
jambe was of a peculiarly daring nature. With 
two other ladies she made an ascent of the 
spire of W'hitwell Church, of which Mr. Haw- 
kins is vicar, two years ago. The spire was 
then in the hands of steeplejacks.

to take up their residence. The Earldom of Liv-

death of his father, who was a collateral 
descendant of Lord Liverpool, the famous pre- 
mier. The present earl is the fifth holder of the

DEAD ON HORSEBACK. 



It is recorded that during a battli? in India 
a squadron of cavalry had been held in reserve 
under cover of a field battalion and an infantry 
regiment. The artillery duel had ended, and 
the assault of the enemy in overv.-helming num- 
bers had been repulsed by the steadiness of the 
infantrv. While a cloud of smo'Ke hung over 
the field, the cavalry received an order to 
charge with drawn sabres. The trcwpcrs start- 
ed in close order for the enemy's line. .About 
half way they met a raking fire from the earth- 
works in front of them, and from the woods 
on their flank. A young cavalry man, with his 
sabre drawn, was shot through the heart while 
leading in the first file. The horse halted, 
swerved to the right, and turned back, but the 
rider kept his seat without flinching. 

The other troopers went on. carried the 
earthworks by storm, rode at a full gallop after 
the retreating force, and converted defeat into 
rout. 

The dead trooper, meanwhile, was return- 
ing with white face and blood streaming from 
his wound. I'nder his nerveless hand the horse 
received neither check nor leading, and made 
his own way towards the infantry, who were 
now advancing rapidly. .As the smoke lifted, 
the soldiers saw the .solitary rider coming with 
one hand in a death-grip on the saddle, while 
the other still held the sword tightly clasped. 
It was a sight never to be forgotten — the gal- 
loping horse with the dead cavalryman still 
mounted aiul looking grim and fierce. It was 
not until the rider had gone fifty yards from 
the spot v.'hcre he had been killed that he rolled 
off hi.s horse. 

A similar tale is told of Captain Nolan, who 
delivered the fatal blundering order for the 
historic charge of the Light Brigade. He was 
seen on the f^cld of Balaclava riding from the 
hills where the staff officers were drawn up to 
the (juarter where the brigade was stationed. 
The charge began, and what was left of the 
brigade returned in broken groups. Finally, 
Nolan was seen galloping rapidly towards the 
centre of the field. lie was firmly seated and 
riding well. Suddenly the horse swerved and 
the rider toppled over. When the officers who 
were nearest rushed forward and lifted him 
from the ground, they found him lifeless. He 
bad been shot and instantly killed, but his 
horscha^itiaiif ijfd hintficross the field out of the 
reach of the pursuing Cossacks. — Newcastle

SEALS AND MY LADY'S COAT. 



THE MODERN BASEBALL. 



(From Popular Mechanics.) 
(Jutwardly the ten-cent ball bears a close 
resemblance to the dollar ball, but as every 
boy knows, there is a vast difference in the 
"life" and durability of tlie two sjiheres. The 
centre of the cheap ball is made of group-up 
carpet rags closely pressed into a core l)y ma- 
chinery. Over this core string is wound — a 
very little string compared to the quantity used 
in winding one of the professional league balls 
— and then the unfinished article is sent to the 
room where the women sewers put the cover 
(.tn, the seam being drawn together l)y hand. 

But the league ball is a very different pro 
duct. In the first place, the construction of this 
ball has been undergoing an evolution for 
years. .At the present time there is much com- 
plaint from those who would have few runs and 
a (prick game, on account of the way in which 
the batters are hitting this new cork-centre 
liall. The complaint is heard that the ball is 
too f?.*t ^ud run.s ton freriiipiit. The explana- 
tion of the experts is that a ball hit on the 
ground with the new ball is no faster than with 
the old one, but that a ball hit in the air goes 
farther, thus accounting for the great number 
of extra-base hits made in recent years. 

vSome years ago the balls were made with 
rubber centres. l1ien, in response to a demand 
for more runs to make the game interesting II, 
the spectators, the experiment was tried of 
making a ball with a small piece of cork in the 
centre, inthe heart of the rubber core. This 
produced a little of the desired effect, and ev- 
ery year from that time the relative sizes of the 
rubber and the cork in the centre of the spheres 
have been changed until the present fast ball 

was evolved.

"Funny thing happened in my town last 
week," sa'id the chatty man in the railway 
carriage. 

•Black, a white man, and White, a black 
man. thought a fellow named Brown was

"Very large numbers of people wiiO do not 
usually feef much concern aliout high politics 
will rejoice at the arrangement virtually con- 
cluded by the Pelagic Sealing Conference 
whicli has been sitting at Washington, says 
the Times. "The representatives of Great 
Britain, japan. Russia, and the United States 
have a-greed that pelagic .scaling is to be sus- 
pended for fifteen vears. That means that one 
of the most beautiful and most intelligent ot 
living creatures is to be saved from imminent 
danger of extirpation. 

"The Powers represented at W ashmgton 
took the common-sense view of the situation. 
They recognized that the preservation of the 
seal'is in the interest of them all, and that he 
cannot be preserved if pelagic sealing con- 
tinues. It is both wasteful and cruel. It means 
the slaughter of lar^^e numbers of cows, which 
involves the starvati<.m of their calves, and the 
loss of the animals that sink or get away 
wounded. 

"Perhajis there is no more striking instance 
of mans ruthlc.ssness in the pursuit of gain 
than this system of sealing. It accounts for 
the reduction of the herd trom about 2,000,000 
in i8B_>, when i^elagic sealing on a large scale 
was just beginning, to 185,000. .\s the seals 
have become scarcer the prices have risen and 
the slaughter been stimulated. To break this 
vicious circle is now the aim of the Interna- 
tional Conference. 

"Pelagic sealing came into vogue in the 
eighties; in 1881 10,000 skins were taken by 
this means; in 1894, 62,000; and if the catch 
has decrea.sed since then it is a fact that since 
1890 the pelagic .sealer has secured twice as

sealers fire at the seals from small boats, mak- 
ing no distinction between males and females; 
.some are killed and sink immediately, others 
arc fatally wounded but e.scape before they die. 
It is stated that for each .skin taken probably 
four seals arc killed and lost. .Moreover, since 
the female seal on her way to and from the 
feeding ground is the favourite prey, it follows 
that 80 per cent of the whole pelagic catch ar« 
females. These not only have nursing pups 
ashore, which are left to die of starvation, but 
are themselves pregnant, the period of preg- 
nancy beginning soon after the birth of the pup 
and lasting until the following spring. Thus 
three lives are destroyed for every female 
killed. After this it may well be believed that 
the pelagic catch of 27,216 skins in 1907 repre- 
sented a loss to the herd of upwards of 75,000 
animals. 

"The sole remaining strongholds of the 
northern fur-seal are the pribyloff and Com- 
mander Islands, the former American, the lat- 
ter Russian, in the Behring Sea. Robbin Island 
—once Russian but now Japanese— used to 
possess large rookeries, while others in the 
Kuril Archipelago belonged to Japan : ruthl««» 
slaughter hta Alni<»«t wiped out these h«t^i* 



though the remnants which remain may yet 
be nursed back to health under Governmont 
protection. Of the Commander and Pribyloff 
herds, the latter is still the largest in the world. 
"There has always been a strong tempta- 
tion to poaching and illegal fishing in the seal 
industry. To prevent ])ractices of this kind 
the conference recommends what is probably 
the only remedy likely to [vrove effectual — 
namely, the exclu-sion from the markets of the 
contracting parties of all skins wdiose origin is 
unknown." 



A WONDERFUL CITY. 



BURIED IN A GLACIER. 



A broken alpenstock bearing the carved 
name, "Dr. J. Bean, Baltimore," has, the 
Chronicle says, just been found by a Chamonix 
guide in the ice of the Glacier des Bo.ssons, 
which 'flows' down direct from the summit of 
M(Mit Blanc to the Valley of Chamonix. The 
find recalls the most terrible acident in .Alpine 
history, wlien eleven climbers perished on the 
summit of the Great White mountain in violent 
snowstorms which lasted a week. 

In September, 1870, Rev. G. .McCorkindale, 
of Glasgow, and two Americans, Dr. J. Bean, 
of P.altiniore. and Mr. Randall (both elderly 
men with little experience of the -Alps), set out 
from Chamonix with eight guides and safely 
reached the summit in doubtful weather. 
Hardly had the descent commenced when the 
snowstorm started,. and not one of the eleven 
climbers was seen again alive. A strong force 
of guides some days later found the bodies of 
five victims, including the clergyman and Dr. 
Bean, but the other six were never found, hav- 
ing most probably fallen into crevasses. It is 
now thought, owing to the discovery of the 
broken alpenstock, thar the bodies 01 ihcTsiK 
climbers, who have ben buried in their tomb 
of ice for the last forty-one years, have reached 
the end of the glacier, which travels at the rate 
of about 500 feet a year, and are not far from 
the surface of the ice at the Hp of Chamonix 
valley.

The remarkable growth of Brazil's wonder 
city, Sao Paulo, is described in a report on the 
trade of the State of Sao Paulo in 1910 by his 
Majesty'.s Consul, Air. O'Sullivan-Beare. In 
1887, he says, Sao Paulo was a quiet, rather 
sleepy town of the usual up-country Brazilian 
type, with a population of .some 47,000 inhabit- 
ants, notable only from the fact that a large 
number of religious orders had established 
themselves therein. When the great tide of 
immigration into the State of Sao Paulo com- 
menced in the year 1887, a considerable por- 
tion of the newcomers established themselves 
in the capital, with the result that the popula- 
tion increased by leaps and bounds during 
the ensuing years, rising last year to 350,000. 

Growth of Twenty Years. 

At the present time Sao Paulo ranks as 
the second city in Brazil. The appearance of 
the new city of Sao Paulo, which has sprung 
into existence within the past twenty years, 
is a matter of surprise to visitors. Sao Paulo 
now resembles one of the great cities of 
Europe. The principal business streets arc 
lined with shops which, in outward appear- 
ance and in the variety and richness of their 
contents, vie with those of Paris or of London. 
The city has been planned with much taste ; 
the various streets and avenues are wide and 
straight, and well paved and planted with 
shady trees. Throughout the city exist a num- 
ber of public gardens, admirably laid out, and 
beautiful with their wealth of tropical verdure. 
The private residences are remarkable, on the 
whole, for the originality and beauty of their 
architecture, while many are of Jfreat size nod 
magnificence. The bustle and activijhr, and the 
ever-increasing traffic which prevail jlfiroayElh-

l^idoubtcdly what gives Thomas de 
Quincey's books a lar^e pari of their interest 
is the fact that they were written liy a man 
who was so addicted to ih(^ use of (i|)ium that 
his whole life may be said to have been tlom- 
inated by ihe drug. His \ i^ions were to him 
realities and so vividly has he described them 
that to the reader it seems as though ihey 
must be realities also. But de Quincey was

Here is ironv. indeed. For it was through 
his activitv in a mission to put down piracy 
that the Cap'n himself became charged with 
piracy (and. of course, with murder), and at 
the age of fiftv-six— a mature age at which to 
enter a new and adventurous profession hke

doubtless, was the 'explanation of why I'-cUa- 
mont governed New Engliand. and why we 
lost New England and other places during the 
vears that followed. ^ 

' In the year of Captain Kidd .^ deatn there 
was published an "Account of the Proceed- 
in<>-s in relation to Captain Kidd m i wo Let- 
ters from a Person of Quality to a Kinsman 
of the Earl of Bellamont": the intention u, 
this treatise being to exculpate the worthy 
I'.ellamont. then lately deceased. 
Profitable Piracy. 
From this source Macaulay and the group 
of historians associated with his view of Cap- 
tain Kidd. drew most of their inspiration. 
From this source ccpially. it is plain that some 
of the governors of New England who had 
preceded Bellamont took a hand m the re- 
munerative game of piracy as practiced by 
vessels sailing out of New York and of smug- 
gling as practised by ves.sels sailing in: 

■■Many were insensibly drawn into these 
ill courses by observing what excessive wealth 
the otTenders gained in a short time, and witn 
what impunity they offended. -For some gov- 
ernors, having found a way to share in the 
profit, were obliged not only to connive at, 
but protect, the offenders." 

Thus the apologist for Bellamont, who was 
flesigned by his King '•fo i)ut a stop to that 
illegal trade and to the growth of piracy, by 
the more rigid enforcement of the Navigatimi 
and Plantation .-Vets. 

The i)rovisions of these -Vets are full of a 
curious interest at the present juncture in 
Anglo-.\merican-Canadian relations, and in 
yiew of the discussions on the Declaration of 
London : 

'■These Acts had been passed in the reign 
o{ Charles 11. for the purpose of securing for 
England the monopoly of American trade, by 
preventing under heavy ])cnalties any direct 
trade between the Colonists and their neigh- 
bours, French. Spanish or Dutch, in the West 
Indies. They prohibited the import and export 
of goods into or from the plantations (or col- 
onies K except in ships built in England; and 
iirovided for the seizure and forfeiture of any 
other vessels employed in that trade and goods 
foun don board. 

It will readily be understood that, although 
this monopoly was regarded with great favor 
in England, it had been growing more' and 
more unpoi)ular with the colonists, as their 
commerce and population increased, becaiusc 
their traffic with their neighbours was incom- 
moded and hampered by it ; the inevitable re- 
sult being that the smuggling of goods mto 
and out of the plantations had become a popu- 
lar and Uicrative business. 

Our Dutch King's desire to check this 
smuggling was not unnatural, money being at 
that time urgently required by him for the 
pfosecution of his French wdr." 
Wicked Scotsmen! 
In the in-camble of an English Act pas.sed 
at this jieriod. the most "artful, cunning, and 
ill-dis]K)Scd per.sons" engaged in the "gi-eal 
abuses to the detriment of English naviga- 

to have done a brisk traffic in faked certih- 
catcs and bills of lading, by means of which 
they carried 'the goods of .Scotland and other 
places of Europe without shipping the same 
in England. Wales, or Berwick-on-Tweed," of 
brought the goods of the plantations into these 
islands otherwise than by the royaUy-approved

the world would T have made this known,-ftOf- 
have suffered a witness to accompany me. 1 
had never heard of feelings that take the name 
of ••sentimental," nor dreamed of such a pos- 
sibility. But grief even in a child hates the 
light, 'anil shrinks Imm hitman eye.s. The 
house, was large, there were two staircases; 
and bv one of these I knew that about noon, 
when all would be (piiet. I couM steal up into

high noon when 1 reached the chamber

ascended through all the sleiries. iio echo ran 
along tlie silent walls. Tiien turning aroun.'., 
1 .sought my sister's face. But the bed had 
been moved', and the back was not turned. 
Nothing met my eyes l)ut (Mie large window 
wide open, t.hrough which the sun of mid- 
summer at noonday was showering tlown tor- 
rents of splendor. 'The weather was dry. the 
sky was cloudless, the blue depths seemed the 
express tvpes of infinity; and it was not f)os- 
sihle for 'eye to behold or for heart to con- 
ceive any symbol> more pathetic of lile and 
the glory of life. 

From the giM-geous sunlight 1 titrnv'! 
round to the corpse. There lay the sweet 
childish figure, there the angel face; and as 
pcojile usually fancy, it was said in the house 
that Hi) features su'fifcrcd any change. Had 
they not? The forehead indeed — the serene 
and' noble forehead,— that might be the same, 
but the froze eyelids, the darkness that seem- 
ed to steal from, benealh tliem. the marble 
lips, the stiffening hands laid i)alm to palm

Mad it been so. wherefore did 1 not spring to 
those heavenly lips with tears and never- 
ending kisses? But so it^wa- not. 1 stood 
checked for a moment; awe, not fear, fell upon 
me. and while I stood, a solemn wind began 
to blow. — the most mournful that car ever 
heard. Mournful f that is saying nothin.L;. It 
was a wind that had swept the fields of mor- 
tality for a hundred centuries. Many times 
since. ui)on a summer day, when the sun is 
about the hottest, 1 have remarked the same 
wind arising and uttering the same hollov.'. 
solemn, Mcmnonian. and saintly swell: it is 
in this world the one sole audible symbol of 
eternity. And llu-sc limes in my life 1 have 
happened to hear theVame sound in the same 
circumstances; namely, when standing be-

RAMBLING NOTES 



Most of you must have noticed, who read 
the English 'press, what i)rominence is given 
to articles dealing with the presence of the 
Chinese in the large cities of England. !>ut 
then it is not as with us, none of the writers 
seVm to urge that the country will l)e over- 
crowded with Chinese. It is an entirely dif- 
ferent i)hase of the tpiestion which they are 
discussing, namely, the intermarriage of white 
women with Chiiiamen. and the iiu-rea.-ing 
juimber of half-caste children. 

vS(.)ineone somewhere, for tlu' ni'uneiit we 
cannot recall the name of the periodical. 
si)caks of the "exotic influence oi the CHiina- 
nian cjver tlie white woman." Now, with ail 
due rcs^^ect to the perpetrator of the above 
phrase, wc feel like saying •"h'.xotic influence 
be hanged!" We do not suppose thai there is 
one wiunan in a thousand among white peo- 
])le who would not loathe the very thougditof 
meeting a Chinaman on any sort of intimate , 
footing, let alone consider seriously marrying 
one i.'f -these men. It is against the law.s of 
nature, and it is only unnatural conditions, un- 
natural environment that fosters such a state 
of things at all. 

Happily for us. this intermarriage side of 
the question has not troubled us to any extent. 
But we can imagine such a deplorable alterna- 
tive that marrying a Chinaman might be wel- 
comed. We all know that there is a dearth of 
men in the United Kingdom. We all know 
that there i.s extensive povcrt}'. We all know- 
that where there is one temptation to sin in 
this country, there are a dozen in the great 
cities of the Old World. When it comes to 
a (|ue3tion of selling one's soul and body, or 
legal marriage Avith a Chinaman, ])robably 
most women would not hesitate o'v^crlong. 
When it comes to a question of saving one's 
chiildren from starvation most women wouhl 
marry a Chinaman rather than barter their 
bodies for food or see their children die of 
hunger. When it comes to a cpiestion of mar- 
riage with a Chinaman or never marrying at 
all, .some few women would accept the alter- 
native, but very, very few. But we do sin- 
cerely believe that generally speaking, no 
white woman would marry a Chinaman if 
there were a chance of her marrying a decent 
white man. 

We read with pleasure in a recent number 
of Collier's, which journal, by the way. is 
iKjted for its caustic comments on Canadian 
sentiment, an appreciative tribute to our 
Northwest Mounted Police, from which we

the pleasure of reading it.

proprietorship in the moiinted police as it has 
in its wheat areas. 

Among the -maps of Western Canada is-

most alluring is the rjne wdiosc red flags bec- 
kon from isolated police posts. 

At police headquarters there is a wall al)Out 
covered with one of the.se maps. The com- 
jnissioner surveys it as a general does a map 
of bis field forces. Now and again he trans- 
mits an order — and a new red flag beckons in 
the North. Another detachment has been

mail stage with the constable and his prisoner, 
while the stage was laboriously pulled through 
miles of road heavy with June r,-uns. 

I'nder the circumstances, how could the 
most reserved or severely disciplined con- 
stable maintain the dignified aloofness that is 
en regie south of S5 f^^'g? Yet under no cir- 
cumstances of that trip did the unparaded, 
unfettered prisoner lose ;thc sense of silent 
dread that he was in the hands .^f the police; 
nor did the young constable fail for an instant 
in his single-minded alertness to duty. 

In another case— this time on the Macken-

of northern life so worked upon the nerves (..( 
one constable that his reason left him. A 
comrade assigned to bring him outsulc ma<le 
the long, hmelv trip with him in mid- winter, 
caring for him with the utmost patience and 
even tenderness. But the strain was too much 
for the escort; and, while the change to life 
(mtsidc restored the first to reason, the other 
succumbed. 

This sad fact was not paragraphed or 
,!....pif ,,.v!n In. Diiblic — ;tt>ain that is not the po- 



lice way! The young fellow's retirement int.; 
the obscurity of an institution was full (jf 
pathos, yet it was only another item '(ui the 
official roll of martyrs to duty. 

This spring, it will be remembered, the 
honor roll, which has been steadily .growing m 
official obscurity, rose in tragic fashion lie- 
fore the public ;'and a fresh notch was carved 
in the glorious tally of police heroism to com- 
memorate the last service of Inspector Fitz- 
gerald's Arctic patrol. 

To the inspector, one of the most adven- 
turous and distinguished officers of the po- 
lice, a death while on duty would probably 
have been his own choice— if choice were 
given us in these matters. But even the most 
philosophical soul could scarcely have desired 
the end so soon. 

Yet after weeks of weariness and semi- 
starvation y.diat resignation and aspiration 
and simple nobility in the fine, believing soul

Listen to the vindicati(;n of William Kidd 

as it is written by Sir Cornelius Neale 

Dalton: — 

•■This worthy, honest-hearted, steadlast. 
much-enduring sailor, a typical sea captain of 
his dav, seems really to have done his best 
to serve his countrv and his cmj)loyers ac- 
cording to his lights in vety difficult circum- 
stances. His fatal mistake which brought all 
his sufferings on him was that he yielded to 
the solicitations, if not to the intimidations. 
o| personages 'of higher rank than his own. 
who for their own ends, induced him. against 
his better judgment, to embark on an impos- 
sible cntcrpri.-Ae. which, after the manner of 
his kind, he doggedly tried to carry through 
to the utmost of his'ability, and in \vhich he 
came nearer attaining success than could reas- 
oiial)l\- have been antici))ated. 

For his pains, after giving himself into 
custody, in rcliahc' on the Vv-ord and honor 
of his 'chief employer, a Whig nObleman. he 
was ignominiously executed, and hung m 
chains, after nearly two years' incarceration, 
and has ever since l)een held up to execra- 
tion as the arch jdrale -w-ho left behind him 
untold treasure taken from the murdered 
crews of jicaceablc merchantmen, and buried 
(God knows where) on the innumerable 
coasts and keys of the West Indies, where 
they are popularly supposed to await discov- 
ery to this day."

( )nt of this ■'w-orthy, honest-hearterl. stead- 
fast" wight, too trustful in his naughty em- 
l)loyer's word, the Macaulays. the Campbells, 
ami their kind have fashioned for us a drunk- 
en, murderous villain, who was caught red- 
handed bv an English frigate on the high seas, 
brought iiome. and most approjiriately imt to 

death. 

Midway between the two versions i)rob- 
ably lies i\\v real character of Captain Kidtl ; 
and the divergence between the facts of his 
life and the fancies of his biographers, if we 
may accejit the narrative and pleadings of Sir 
Cornelius Neale Dalton, is to Ix- traced in the 
first place to a conspirac}- of exalted persons 
within the Goyerniuent of England, unparal- 
leled for its scandalous rapacity and coward- 
ice, save perhaps liy the South African plot

tancy of Dr. Jim. It is a great yarn. 

Kidd ■'seems to have been born in Scot- 
land"; an<l in the glorious days of William 
HI. Scotsmen were not popular in England. 
Moreover, Kidd lived the greater part of his 
life in the American Colonies; and that did not 
help him with British justice when he came to 
answer with his neck for his reputed delin- 
quencies. 

It is not alleged by his detractors that he 
had not borne an excellent character until he 
was sent on his wild goose chase after pir- 
ates,' nor is 'there any reason to believe that he 
had any taste himself for piracy. On the 
contrary, it was \\\s> exemplary past condijci 
ill this respect, in which he was certainly in 
advance of his time, which was the primary 
cause of his ruin, inasmuch as it induced ttoc 
Earl of Bellamont, the Governor of ^'«^j^*|P'*

THE ARYAC MIGRATION. 



As \va^ iiuimaled last Sunday, this article 
v\ill deal with something' that may never have 
taken place at all, but only with sojnc ascer- 
tained facts, some acccp.ted theories and .some 
ima^dnation. The accepted theories are two. 
C.)ne of them is that the eartli came to its i)re- 
sent form from a condition of chaos accompa- 
nied by great heat and that the cooling pro- 
cess was in evidence at the jiolcs at an earlier 
period than dse where. The other is that a 
race of men in-tlie possuJKsion of suptyiqr (|nah- 
ties came from somewhere in the north ti:i the 
lan.ls adjacent to the Mediterranean vSea and 
Indian Ocean, and dispossessed to a large e.\~

tflll IIIC pCl.'j.'X.. vv w^... i..»-_; »^^ ..^ „ . 

The ascertained facts are^ first, that the regions 
surrounding the North Pole produced vegeta- 
tion now found only in sul)-tropical countries, 
as welVaS^iiiimals of great size; second, that 
an event occurred of such a character that .some 
at least of the animal life was destroyed, Aud 
tliut the destruction was so sudden and accoiK- 
panic'-l by ^\ich intense cold that the iiCSh w 
"the animals was frozen and has remained froz- 
en until this day. 

Now we will let imagination with the help 

of a' little reasoning tell the rest of the story. 

We do not know when or where human life 

originated on the earth. There is no reas- 

— o n to believe, ' io far as human rccord a go . that 



tendance, ano lue inaj»->iuj i.t, w.ic p^^,.-- - 

no part at all in religious exercises. In h'rance 
irreligion is so general that it dominates the 

State'! 

What is the eNi>lanation of this? We 
know that as a general proposition society is 
growing better. Higher standards of life i)re- 
vail than ever before; greater efforts are ntade 
for the alleviation of distress; vice is dis- 
countenanced. The profligacy' that character- 
ized other times would not be tolerated now; 
the oppression of the weak calls forth protests 
ai.)d is soon, remedied. Those who are hi the 
enjovme^nt of wealth no' longer treat their les.s 
fortunate brethren as though suffering and 
iniscrv were their allotted condition. Organi- 
zations with milHon> .0' inenibers llourish on 
the foundations of altruism, wliirli is only a 
practical application of the (".olden Kule. 
Where then shall we seek for lhe_ rea-on of 
the falling off in church attendance.^ 

Is not the true explanation to be found in 
the fact that the creeds taught by the churches 
fail to satisfy human intcHigeucc? Let u:^ 
examine the matter in an unprejtidiced man- 
ner. Let us take the case of if boy who goes 
to a school in which religious instruction is 
imparted. He is taught to accept the Book 
of Genesis as veritable history^; but concur- 
rently with this he is instructed In the elemen- 
tary principles of geology. He is expected to 
bolitive that the wofld wa.s created in six days

Christian countries to persecute them simply 
because they are Jews. Arc creeds necessary 
anyway? 







THE ROMAN EMPERORS 



When the removal of Commodus had been 
accomplished, his assassins, or at least lho^e 
who were responsible for his death, repaired 
forthwith to the home of I'ertinax, a distin- 
guished senator, then in his sixty-.seventh year. 
On being awakened, for it was after midnight 
when the tumuituoiis- h(jr'<;re''rcached' his house. 
I'crtinax supposed the minions of Commodus 
hail been sent bv that monster of cruelty to 
take his life, ami he met the visitors with a 
dignity that was worthy of his long career of 
honorable service to his country, and lold lliein 
to execute their master's orders with despatch. 
To his great suri)rise they otTered him the 
croun. lie declined it. but ])ermitted himsci; 
to be persuaded to accept, although with many 
mis"'!vin"S. He was at once conducted to tue 
cam']) of the Praetorian Guards, who were tpid 
tt. _4. <~«_~ J.,,. u^,i ,'i',o,\ />* ar»/-n-vi<»vv and that 

;. Pertinax had succeeded to the throne. The 
guards received the tidings with mixed feel- 
ings. They were glad to be rid of Commodus; 
they had confidence in Pertinax, but they 
would have preferred to hav6 themselves chos- 
en a new emperor. They, however, agreed to 



their behalf, and when the Senate, once the 
jjride. giorv and safety of Rome, had .-.o far 
fallen fruni its high estate that it was etpial 
only to passing condemnatory resolutions upon 
a (lead tyrant and dared not assert itself to 
sustain the authority of a just ruler. 

Here it mav be mentioned thatvvhilc un- 
doubtedly the 'decay of the Roman Empire was 
due in very large measure to^the vices of those 
in aulhoritv. the most active 'factor in brmgmg 
it about was the determination of the Praetori- 
an Guards to control the state. This relatively 
small band of armed men, they i)rol)ably did 
not exceed ten or fifteen thousand, had been 
establi.shed bv .\ugu.stvis as' a soft of per.sonal 
guard. Kept'f'.r the greater part of the time in 
well-i)ai(l idlenes.-^. they became grossly vicious 
and licentious, and they determined that Rome 
should be administered in such a way ihal 
their lusts .should have full scope for action. 
When they slew Pertinax they hastened the 
downw^ard course of the nation, wdiich he 
might have been able to arrest, if he had h.ccn 
permitted- to live ti^'^sirry out his i)..licies.

By this time dawn was just breaking. 
Throughout, the homes of the senators all was 
mistTe iirpi-eparation-for a gr ea t- gladiatorial-- 

competition to which 'Commodus had invited 
them, when messengers appeared demanding 
that they should repair at once to the Temple 
of Concord to ratify the choice of a new em- 
peror. Most of them refused to believe that 
this could be the r'"!"P'-^-^' '- '^"le summons, 
which thev dared not di.-^obey. They behoved 
it was siinply a device by wdiich Commodus 
hoped to implicate them all in a treasonable 
consi)iracv. When they reached the temple and 
learned that the tyrant was indeed dead, and 
so virtuous a successor had been chosen, then- 
joy knew no bounds'. I'ertinax was at once 
confirmed in his office, and edicts were ])assed 
brandi"f-' th.e memory of Commodus with cter- 
narinfamv. ordering' his body to be drawMi by 
ji hook in'to the striiiping-room of the gladiat- 
ors, comnian<ling the destruction of his statues, 
and directing the erasure of his name from all 
public monunients. I'ertinax, wdio had been 
a counsellor of Marcus Anrclius, could not find 
it in his heart to see the remains of his de- 
graded son exposed to public contemiit, and lie 
asked the Senate to permit the burial of Com- 
modus with the customary rites, and this favor 
was granted him. 

IVrtinax began his reign with the inaugu- 
ration of a svstem of much-needed reforms, 
lie recalled from exile and released from prison 
hundreds of worthy citizens, who had incurred 
the displeasure of his predecessor; he remitted 
some of the more burdensome taxes, and .sold 
at auction ninch .^f the gold and silver jdate 
that ad(jrned the imperial palace, as well as

uho would cultivate them. In his ha.stc to

more raiiidlv than the soldiers would tolerate.

Nanak has been compared to Luther, but his 
followers did n(.t fight on Lutheran principles. 
Thousands of J at yeomen j(Mncd the banner 
under the sixth (uiru to throw off the Moham- 
medan yoke, but it would be misleading to say 
they were inspired with the spirit of the Re- 
formation. Rather they accepted the book 
with the sword. 

Guru Govind, the tenth and the last of the 
line was a born leader of men. The bearded 
martial Sikh wdioni we know today and who 
has endeared himself to us on the field was 
Govindi's creation. Good old Xanak^ could not 
have foreseen him even in his most'' adventur- 
ous dreams. Yet, if the old man could rise 
from his grave, now imindatcd by the Ravi at 
Dehra Nanak. and he confronted by his own 
spiritual descendant, the Govindi Sikh, he 
could not but admire the breed, remote as the 
idea of it must have been from his own mind, 
and shocking as it would have been in certain 
respects to his sense of fitness.

gathered force. He bided his time and ex- 
panded his faith to meet the political condi- 
tions of the age, and in the process refined 
rather than degraded it. Before he struck at 
Islam he had inspired his cause with the 
glamor of a crusade. He had an eye, or a

■'the commonwealth of the chosen, into which 
his disciples were initiated by the ceremony 
of pahal, or baptism by steel and 'the waters 
of life.' He abolished caste, and ordained 
that every Sikh should bear the old Rajput title 
of Singh, or Lion, as every Govini Sikh docs

gradual and afterv.aid- \ cry sudden. I lowever 
it may have been, our Aryac ancestors were 
driven to seek homes in a southern and m<.)rc 
genial land. .\\\y\ so they set our npun their 
journey. They perished by thousands on the 
way; lhe.\- lost the chief features of their civil-. 
izatii>n; their former greatness became only a 
mvth : their kings were remembered as gods 
and demi-gods. The struggle for existt'nce 
hardened them. They became fierce and resist- 
less. They swept before them the tribes which 
])eopled tiie lands which they visited. Wdun 
they reached the shores of the Mediterranean 
they found a ruined civilization. The catas- 
trophe that had destroyed their home had over- 
thrown the nations which dwelled around that 
great expanse of -water. They found a pco]tle 
inhabiting a land that was in ruins, and these 
thev drove ont or rpdncerl to sla\ery. 1 he 
other tribes that li\ed in lower latitudes before 
- the great cataslroiihe gave way l)efore them, 
finding refuge in the mountains of Asia and in 
western Europe. Those who took the fc)rmer 
course emerged from their refuge as the great 
Turanian rape ,, to .occupy China, Japan, and 
afterwards j^arts of central Europe. The others 
made their homes in the mountains of Switzer- 
land and the I'yrcnees, some of them finding 
their way as far as the Hriti.sh Isles.

THE FAILURE OF CREEDS 

The Census of the Lnited Slates discloses 
the fact that over thirty millions of people are 
not classified as belonging to any church m-- 
ganization. A certain proportion of these rep- 
resent children, but it is probably within the 
mark to suppose that of them ten millions are 
adults, and if this is correct one-half the adult 
population of the country is not identified with 
any church. This is a very remarkable condi- 
tion, and it warrants the opinion that the next 
Census may show nearly if not quite half the 
total population not even nominally adherents 
of any Christian denomination. As a matter 
of fact, even now very much less than fifty 
per cent of the people are churchgoers, put- 
ting the most liberal construction upon that 
term Nor is this condition confined to the 
United States. In urban England there has 
been a very notable falling off in church at-

a willing listener. The workaday world 
never felt the need of a Saviour as much as it 
docs in this Twentieth Century after the birth 
of the Founder of Christianity, but creeds do 
not furnish a guide to Him. 

The effect of this insistence of creeds is " 
that church attendance has fallen off. N't 
long ago in one of the city churches the writer 
of this article listened to a sermt.'P, which left 
upon the minds of all thoughtful per.so'n ^ who 
heard it a strong feeling of having been up-

walk with happiness and a consciousness of 
doing his duty, and yet without relaxing his 
efforts as an honorable and indu.strious citi- 
zen to make good the adyanta^csavvhicJv God 
and Nature have placed within his reach. The 
•dnirch edifice would seat perhaps eight hun- 
dred peo])le; probably there were two hundred 
i)resent. Every one who knows the minister 
knows him to be actuated by a fine spirit of 
manly piety, to be everything that makes a 
good citizen, and yet although he was telling 
his congregation things that every one would 
l)e glad to hear, he only had an audience ocptal 
to about one-quarter the capacity of the build- 
ing. What is the explanation? It is easier 
to ask the question than to answer it, but may 
not the ansAver be that the people have out- 
grown the creeds that seemed sufficient four 
or five centuries ago? The world has ad- 
vanced in everything except the accepted ex- 
planation of the attitude of God towards man. 
This, as put forward by religious instructors, 
is not only mediaeval, but it is a mediaeval at-

Indeed the history and the religion of a race 
arc so indissolubly bound together that to 
know (Mie is to know the other. The follovv-

Magazine are both enlightening and interest- 
ing in the respect of furnishing an insight into 
the faith and traditions of the Sikhs.

THE VICTORIA COLONIST 



AmbTuilaiBee Assodatfeim 



Considerable interest has attached to the 
formation by Dr. David Donald and other pub- 
lic-spirited citizens of a Victorian centre of the 
Canadian branch of the world-famous St. 
John Ambulance Association, 

But interesting as the first aid work of 
this association is, both its interest and the 
romance that always attaches to ambulance 
work are eclipsed by the history of the ancient 
and noble order from which it originated. 

Prior to the formation of its kingdom in 
1099, Jerusalem was long recognized as the 




of Esquires to the Knights of Justice, and if 
eligible became in uuc muc p«urnv/kCs* ^^ —^ 
higher order. The Servants at Office were 
men of humble rank in life, who acted as do- 
mestics within the convent and hospital. 
Though lacking the position and dignity of 
their nobler brethren, this class possessed nu- 
merous privileges and emoluments which ren- 
dered admission into the order, even in this 
grade, very advantageous to men of the hum- 
bler ranks of society. Ladies were first en- 
rolled in 1259, and at once, it seems from the 
earlv records, took their full share in the char- 
,itable work, rivalling in zeal the mos| earnest 
of the brethren. 

For many years the Knights Hospitallers. 
as they were' called, co-operated with the 
Knights Templ^r-s in the defence of Jerusalem 
and^of the Holy Land against the pagan Sar- 
acens. But when they were not compelled to 
turn their swords against the common enemy, 
the two orders were as often than not em- 
plo\\-l in fighting each other ! 

"in the beginning of the fourteenth 
tury, the Order of St. John, which had picvi- 

OUSIV UCCii CI «_o.3>i«wi^^'<v— .. w. --• 

bracing all Christendom, was divided into tlie_. 
seven nations or tongues (languages) of Pro- 
vence. Auvergne, France, Italy. Aragon. Eng- 
land and Germany; and to these seven an 
eighth was subsequently added, in order to in- 
crease the influence of Spain in the gener^J 
Ijodv. The language-tfX-Aragau- wns divi d c di 
tlieV-f-w portion taking the title of the langup'; 
of "Ca-stile", and embracing Portugal. Under th^ 
new conditions, each langue became a semi- 
independent body, owing allegiance to the sov-- 
ercign of the territory from which it was de- 
rived, and governed by a Grand Prior of its 
own election ; while the order as a whole was 
governed by a Grand Master, who could only 
be elected at a Chapter at which all the langues 
were represented, When the order was finally 
driven from Jerusalem by the Saracens, its 
headquarters was successfully established at 
Acre, at Cvprus, at Rhodes, and finally at 
:Malta. where its sovereignty was recognized 
by the great powers; and for some centuries 
its successfully held the Mediterranean against 
the Turks. 

The property of the order was confiscated 
-. r.{ Hcnrv VHL. revived again by 



Jef in r888. When it i? r«^membered there are 
over 30,000 accidents every ytar in the Domin- 
ion, and that there are daily occurring mnumer- 
able accidents of which no statistics are taken, 
or which do not even attract public attention, 
it is unnecessary to point out how well deserv- 
ing of honorable recognition must be any ef- 
forts made to relieve— as this organization 
does in its unique work--so much needless hu- 
man suffering and anguish.

PAINTING EXTRAORDINARY 

The British public is acquainted with the 
gentleman who sits under a tent at the seaside 
with a cummerbund about his waist and a 
Panama hat on his head, and turns out por- 
traits in chalk of more or less self-conscious 
sitters at the rate of a shilling a time. Some- 
times ten minutes is sufficient for a portrait, 
sometimes five, but the execution of a portrait 
in five minutes is regarded a.s remarkably 
srhart business. ' ® ' 

More rapid is the gentleman on the music 
hall stage who turns out half-a-dozen carica- 
tures of celebrities, skits on the harem skirt, 
and a tolerable likeness of iiis Majesty the 
King, along with z vast cinanlity of patter, all 
inside a quarter of an hour.

pear in the Moslem Press of Java, Persia, Rus- 
sia, India, Turkey, and Egypt, discussing such 
questions as the position of womanhood, the 
use of the veil, polygamy, slavery, or the Mec- 
ca Railway, to be convinced that in spite of 
outward unity the Moslem world of thought is 
rent by dissension and discord, According to 
William E. Curtis, a newspaper correspondent, 
the Moslem religion has fallen into disuse in 
the Turkish empire among the educated class- 
es. The doctrines of the Koran are considered 
incompatible with modern progress. Atheism 
Ls. growing, th? pilgrimages to Mecca are fall- 
incr off. and notwithstanding the loyalty of the 
common people to their faith, the material con- 
dition of the mosques and sacred l^laces is 
a'bout as low a«; their spiritual condition. The 
Tendency seems to be to drift away not only 
from Islam, but from all religion." The call 
for a pan-Islamic congress at Cairo this year 
has met with little response, as far as w_e can

is not the IcaRt^oubt that tens of thousands 
of Moslems in T^jurkey and Persia, and even 
in Arabia, are intellectually convinced of the 
truth of Christianity as against Islam. The 
philosophical disintegration of Islam, which 
began in Persia by the rise of Moslem sects, is 
now being hastened througli newspaper dis- 
cussions. The attack on orthodox Moham- 
medanism was never so keen or strong on the 
part of any missionary as has been the recent - 
attack from those inside Islam. In Russia the 
new Isla-m is rapidly creating a new literature 
bv translations and adaptations. A Tartar 
translation of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" has ju*t 
been printed, and the Moslem newspapers at 
Baku earnestly contend that it isposstblc to 
rationalize Islam, stating that its present im- 
mobility and superstition are only temporary 
conditions which do not characterize it an^ 
more than Catholic superstitions, the Inquisi 
tion. or the stake were the real Christianity in 
the Middle Ages. Islam, according to these 
writers, is passing through a revolution and a 
process of reform, and the new Islam will yet 
rule the world.— S, M. Zweimcr in "The East

place of pilgrimage for Christians from all 
parts of Europe. In those days the perils of 
the journey were worse than any occasioned 
since bv murderous motors or suicidal aero- 
planes, while the lack of shelter and accommo- 
dation at the end of the journey eclipsed that 
which distinguishes all the towns of the Pa- 
cific Coast today— with the exception, of 
course, of our own city, where the climate is 
so beautiful that even its residents prefer to 
lie out of doors ! 

In those old pilgrimage days, various char- 
itably disposed persons in Jerusalem offered 
the pilgrims such board and lodging as their— 
or should I say the visitors'— means afforded, 
and also to protect them against some of the 
dangers of the journey. But the systematiza- 
tion of these attempts were left to a body of 
merchants from Amalfi, who established an 
organization for the purpose under one named 
Gerard as its first master. Between 1099— 
when the Kingdom of Jerusalem was formed— 
and the middle of the twelfth century, the or- 
der, under Raymond du Puy, built a hospice 
and two Christian churches in Jerusalem. 



Royal Charter in the reign of Queen Marv. to 
be again confiscated in the reign of Queen Elix- 
abeth. although the Charter was not annulled 
and the order continued to meet and exercise* 
charity in secret: even continuing as a frater- 
nity devoted to hospital and charitable work 
after the surrender of the Island of Malta in 
1880. In 1834 the Rev. Sir Robert Peat; hav- 
ing been elected Grand Prior, appeared before 
the Court of King's Bench, and took certain 
oaths as prescribed by the Charter of Queen 
Marv; and in 1888 Queen Victoria granted a 
new'Charter, giving the order a status and con- 
stitution based upon the former Charter of 
Queen Mary, thus fully reviving the mediaeval 
corporation Which was recognized as the Eng- 
lish order from the time of Edward II. to 
Henry VHL. preserving the name which the 
Knights bore in the time of tVie latter monarch. 
Under the Charter of 1888 the reigning sov- 
ereign is also the Sovereign Head and Patron 
of the order, without whose approval no ap- 
pointment or promotion in it can be made, and 
by whom the Grand Prior is nominated. This 
office, from the date of the Charter^ to the ac- 
cession of King George, was held by the 
Prince of Wales : but King George, presumably 
on' account of the Prince's youth, nominated 
the Duke of Connaught to the vacancy occas- 
ioned bv his own accession. A large number 
of members of the Royal Family are Knights 
or Ladies of Justice of the order, and on many 
occasions have taken part in its ceremonies, or 
have given to the successful candidates the 
prizes awarded under its competitions. The 
members and associates have decorations cor- 
responding with their rank in the order, and 
these are worn at court, in uniform, or on other 
suitable occasions. 

A Knight of Grace, an Esquire, or an Hon- 
orary Associate of the order is required by 
the regulations to be "of sufficient social posi- 
tion," and for a Knight of Justice the original 
genealogical qualification is, as a rule, main- 
tained. But this qualification is not required 
in any case in which promotion to the grade is 



The same artist, when 
Connaught was in Japan upon tlie ('.arler 
Mission, painted his Royal Highness an im- 
portant picture in one evening. 

The great Italian artist, Guido Reni. could, 
it is said, turn out an admirable painting in the 
space of half a day— if you locked him up in 
a room and refused to let him out until the 
thing was finished, as his credit(^rs sometimes 
took the liberty of doing. Rubens, too, must 
have worked a't a pretty good pace while he 
was at it. to judge bv the number of enormous 
works he left behind. But it is doubtful 
whether the world outside Japan could produce 
a living painter with the least pretension to 
artistic excellence who for fertility and facility 
couid hold a candle to Mr. Fukui Kotei, who 
nevertheless is not without rivals in his own 
country. 

The amazing rapidity of production of the 
competent Japanese artist is not his cmly 
claim to our esteem and wonder. His :n- 
genuitv in improvising the materials of his 
craft is equallv admirable and surprising:. 

There is an old story of Sir Benjamin 
West, an artist now almost forgotten, but once 
the president of the Koyal .Academy, to the ef- 
fect that as a child he painted pictures with a 
brush made by himself with some hairs pluck- 
ed from a cat's tail. What the cat had to say 
on the subject is not recorded. 

But Mr. Terasaki Kogyo, of Japan, has 
gone one better. Dining on one occasion with 
an hotel proprietor in L^ieno Park, and desir- 
ing to gratifv his host. he. in the absence of the 
usual implements, painted on a golden screen 
a picture of a plum tree, using as a brush a 
handkerchief dipped in pigment, and putting in 
the blossoms with a salt dish !~Tit-Bits,

that it was very lawiui to pmnur- 
goods belonging to the enemies of Christian- 
ity" ; and declared that he had been instructed 
accordingly from* his youth upward. 

Colonel Robert Livingstone, a Scotsman 
(another of 'em!) who had lived in New York 
and had interests in New England, discreetly 
agreed Avith the Earl of Bellamont that some- 
thing must be done to limit the range of piracy 
and snniggling. It was Livingstone who af- 
firmed tluit Kidd was a bold and honest man, 
and. he believed, better than any other to be 
employed on that occasion. 

Some time afterwards, when Kidd was on 
his trial, three British officers and a private 
gentleman testified that Livingstone was right 
in his judgment of the captain's character ; for 
he had fought finely in the West Indies against 
the French — "as well as any man I ever saw," 
said one witness. It was mentioned also that 
years before, during the war against France, 
Kidds crew had seized his ship because he 
had conscientious objections to a bit of harm- 
less privateering; and, furthermore, that Kidd 
before going out on his final expedition had 
told a friend that he was forced to the under- 
taking by the threats of the Earl of Bellamont 
"and great men in it." 

The Admiralty, for more or less excellent 
reasons, refused to employ Captain Kidd on 
the .scheme as outlined to Bellamont by Liv- 
ingstone and by Bellamont to the King; 
whereupon Livingstone proposed a private 
speculation in "pirate-chasing." If four or 
more others would supply four-fifths of the 
cost of fitting out a ship to put down piracy 
and snniggling. said Livingstone, he and Kidd 
would put u}> the other fifth. 

The idea caught on with King William: he 
"highly approved it" : 

He^ did also declare, as an encour^igement 
to such an undertaking, that the persons with 
whom the Earl should engage to be at the ex- 
pense of the voyage should have a grant of 
what Kidd should take from the pirates, so 
far as it might belong to him, except some 
part, which he would reserve for himself, 
chiefly to show that he was a partner in the 

undertaking 

At the worst, the King could not lose a 
farthing by it. If it succeeded, he -^vould not 
only gain his object, but pocket substantial 
share of the plunder. The adventurers might 
pocket more, but they would run some risks 
of parting with their money and getting no

cion attaches." I should think it does. When 
the Cap'n was sented by the Lord Chief Baron 
Ward, he replied: "My lord, it is a very hard 
sentence. For mv part I 'am the innocentest 
per.son of them al'l." Without going so far as 
that. l)ut assuming the approximate fairness of 
the present belated narrative, there is no doubt 
that if Captain Kidd deserved hanging, his 
blue-blooded supporters qualified for a treat- 
ment hardly less extreme. 

Kidd at Newgate. 
Owing to the harsh conditions imposed by 
his employers, as much at least as to any ac- 
tion of Kidd himself, his crew mutinied, after 
a year's unpaid labour, and in the course of 
the row a gunner named Moore was killed. 
But the Cap'n "would not call it murder to the 
very last, esteeming it rather an accidental 
misfortune than a murder, by reason that there 
was but one blow given, and that in passion 
without any premeditated malice." And again, 
"he was so far from bearing any malice against 
Moore that he had freely given ^200 for his 
ransom previously; and further said that all 
his sailors knew he always had a great love 
and respect for him ; adding that if anyone con- 
cerned in his trial had acted contrary to the 
dictates of his or their own conscience he 
heartily forgave them, and desired that God 
would do the like." 

At Newgate, where he was persistently 
badgered by a parson named Lorrain (who 
combined w'ith the functions of chaplain those 
of a yellow journalist, and was the author of 
innumerable "Last Dying Speeches and Con- 
fessions"), W^illiam Kidd refused to admit his 
guilt either of piracy or murder. In a gang of 
pirates, he was conveyed to the execution dock 
at Wapping "by the officers of the Admiralty 
and others, carrying the Silver Oar before 
them according to custom." There, too, Kidd 
refused to confess, even though on the rope 
breaking and the scaffold collapsing, he was 
fervently requested to make good the passing 
moments whilst further arrangements were 
prepared for his effectual despatch." 

All that they could get out of William was 
an invocation to seamen in general and cap- 
tains in particular to "act with more caution 
and prudence, both in their private and public 
affairs by sea and land," than he had done, be- 
cause, forsooth, "this was a very fickle and 
faithless generation," filled with^guileful specu-

NOTARIES PUBLIC 

Notaries public are said to have been first 
appointed by the leaders of primitive Chris- 
tians for the purpose of collecting data for the 
lives of the first century martyrs. It was a 
long time before the office had to do with legal 
employments, such as attesting deeds, wills, 
etc.„and-.estabUs,hing their authenticity in any 
other country. There was much irregularity

' gleet their briefs, and ungrateful kings, and 
harsh judges, and treacherous friends, and un- 
trustworthy backers, like Somers, who sought 
to save his own skin by maligning the Cap'n 
whilst his corpse yet swung in the chains. 

Of William Kidd's effects forfeited to the 
Crown, "six thousand four hundred and sev- 
enty-one pounds were afterwards given by 
Queen Anne towards the establishment 01 
Greenwich Hospital." Queen Anne is dead, 
but it is still certain that sometimes out of evil 
Cometh forth good. Also is it certain that 
sailormen generally, and captains in particu- 
lar, cannot be too careful.— William Purvis, in 



gstone and Kidd subscribed £600 
each ; the rest of the £6,000 needed was "ad- 
vanced" by "four of the most powerful men in 
England at that time, leading men in the 
King's Whig Ministry; Somers, the Lord 
Chancellor; the Earl of Orford, First Lord of 

the Admiralty; and the two Secretaries of ^ ^^ 

State, the Earl of Romney and the Duke of JJ"' Sunday" Chronlcie 

made to the adventurers by the King, these 
highly-placed personages, strangely enough, 
did not figure ; their nomincss in the list were 
four ordinary persons who had not put up a 
penny. The Earl of Bellamont and Sir Ed- 
mund Harrison, a man of standing in the city, 
were named in the document, but neither Cap- 
tain Kidd nor Colonel Livingstone was men- 
tioned. The royal fee for this accommodation 
was set out at a tenth part of all the loot ; and, 
on the face of it, there seemed likely to be a 
great deal.

THE VlGTORlxt COLONIST 



, twXf 90. Itll 




nais^ance in the Chinese as a nation until sev- 
eral generations have passed I must first give 
a slight sketch of Chinese history. 

China and her peoples have always been 
held as an example of a nation which, b}- its 
type of government, its laws, and the charac- 
teristics i>f its peoples, has for thousands of 
years been able to resist the general laws 
governing the rise and fall of nations. That 
China has preserved its entity, more or less, 
for ages, while other nations of more vitality, 
strength, and knowledge, have been born, 
lived, and died, cannot be denied; but that 
this has been due to any special Chinese char- 
acteristic, of either people or government, is 
absurd. This length of life has been due 
solely to location, environment and climate 
— nothing else. 

From the beginning until the nineteenth 
century China was as isolated from the world 
at large as if located in Mars. On the north 
were the barren plains of Mongolia and the 

saiiuv WaaLC Ui liiC vjODi uCovi <., u»._*>->»»Ci »»lti\.S« 

Stretched tke interminable and uninhabited 
forests of Siberia : on the west the impassable 
mountains — the Roof of the World ; on the 
south swamps, jungle, and the Indian Ocean; 
and on the east the Pacific, an impassable 
barrier. 

Thus carefully guarded by nature from 
the outside world, with a country of many 



pffor in look n\\f for it<('lf>, anything to gain 
time ; never making a determined effort to cure 
disease by a surgical operation, but merely tak- 
ing a sedative for temporary relief. .All civil- 
ized nations were there, and all wished some 
concession. Thus for forty year.-s China has 
been kept intact by playing the different na- 
tions one against the other. iCach has been in 
fear that some other would acquire an advan- 
tage, thu.s disturbing the balance of influence. 
Kach has wanted much, and thus they ha\c 
neutralized each other. The integrity of China 
has been but as a pole standing erect upon the 
surface of things, which, il left to itself, would 
fall. Its uprightness has been maintained solely 
by the pull (if the different foreign nations. 
Each has a siring of wants fastened to this 
pole, and they all pull together. 

The Chinese-Japanese War in 1894 made 
plain the hopelessness and rottenness of China 
and the Chinese people from a collective and 
national viewpoint, licr Imperial Majesty the 
late Dowager Empress, one of the greatest wo- 
men of history, was all tliai held things to- 
gether, and after her the deluge. She had a 









cialdom. The best were far from perfect states- 
men, but they were devoted to the Empress, 
and thus pulled together. There was a de- 
finite head and a leader — not an enlightened 
one from a modern standpoint, but a strong 
woman doing her best to save the dynasty and 



a notorious fart that hardly one single Cuinese 
limited company has been a success from the 
stand))oint of the shareholders. This includes 
the China Merchants Steam ^Navigation Com- 
pany, Chinese mining companies, electric 
lighting plants, water-works, Chinese cotton 
factories, etc., etc. The railways that arc man- 
aged solely by the Chinese are soon allowed to 
run down, and no funds are set aside for re- 
pairs or improvements. I 

Since the Chinese took over the Peking- 
Hankow Railway from the IJelgians in De- 
cember. iix>8, no regular repairs or replace- 
ments ha\e been maclje.. The |)rofits ha\e been « 
squandered and both roailbed and rolling 
stock are going to ruin. The com])any has 
just been making vain efforts to float a large 
foreign loan for the repair of this railway. If 
the people are unable to coml)ine with success 
to n\anage the affairs of a small corporation, 
how much less could they comliinc to run the 
affairs .if the country? 

The present system of governniciir is hope- 
less. The Central ('.()\ eninieiu has but little 
hold on the j)rovinces, and tears them. The 
raxes and reypniip^ aro nrartirailv farmed out. 

and but a small percentage of the amount tak- 
en from the people ever reaches the Central 
Government. 

The whole effort is to get money at any 
cost, even if the source of revenue is eventually 
destro^-ed thereby. As an example, when the

ica from Maine to Florida, a rich and varied 

soil, lending itself kindly to cultivation, with 
all natural resources in the greatest abund- 
ance (iron, coal, gold, silver, copper), H was 

possible for China to work out her own civil- 
ization, laws, government, literature, and eco- 
nomic life. But even under these conditions 
there was a natural ebb and flow in her na- 
tional vitality, and dynasties changed, and 
twice tlie country has been conquered. The 
only possible point of attack in the years past 
has been from the north, the country of cold, 
deserts and scanty vegetation. 

The first people to gain control were wan- 
ilering bands of snout-faced Tartars; and later 
the 2iIongols — a poor, starved, hungry l<'t I't 
nomads, with nothing to lose in- fight and ail 
to gain. The .Mongol dynasty lasted until the 
coiujuerors became rich, fat, and soft with good 
li\ing, and lost their fighting abilities. Then 
appeared the leader, a Chinese moid<, Chu 
liuen Chang, a fighter and a leader of men. 
The whole of China rose and the IMongols 
were no more south of the Great Wall. 

Thus began the Ming dynasty, the most 
brillinnt of all Chinese dynasties. The country 
expanded to the east and south and jiorth. 
Armies were sent to Turkestan and as far as 
Persia. All gave way bef<^re them. .\t last 
came pe;ice and prosperity, arts and crafts and 
literature, flourishing as never before. The 
fighting spirit died. The central government 
lost its grip on the provinces. Internal trotdilcs 
began— palace conspiracies and revolutions. 
X.')rth of the Great Wall were the Manchus, a 
small, half civilized crowd, only a few genera- 
tions frr>m nomads. They longed for the treas- 
ure and lands of their fat, lazy, vainglorious 
neighbor, atid watched for an opening. It came 
at i'ast. There were two parties in the nation 
fighting against each other. Neither side had 
sufficient vitality to down the other, and nei- 
ther had much 'liking for real fighting. The 
leader against the then Emperor opened the 
gates in the Great Wall and invited the Man- 
chus to help him win the throne. This was 
their opportunity. They conquered the Em- 
peror's party, then conquered the other party, 
and established themselves on the Dragon 
Throne in 1644. The fighting went on for 
many years before all China submitted, but at 
last all came under the Manchu rule, and are 
there today. 

The inevitable result followed: >ears of 
peace and comirierce destroyed all militant 
spirit, and the Manchus became more or less 
absorbed by the Chinese. The official class 
became rotten to the core, corruption of every 
kind was fostered, and then appeared the for- 
eigner with modern arms and ships of war. 

Prom the beginning of China's history until 
the coming of tlic Westerner, all the peoples 
with whom the Chinese came in contact were 
inferior to thetn in all that tends tow-ards civ- 
ilization. And not only in civilization I)Ut in 
numbers. Not all the Manchus numbered as 
many as the Chinese of a single province. Con- 
sequently the civilization of the Chinese was 
their own. They took nothing from other na- 

llOllS, itiiu wcic iicvci nji v_c\.i y>y \.v^iii j/ciiuvjii iv 

exert themselves along lines of improvement. 
They knew not the existence of anything su- 
perior to what they had. They could imagine 
nothing better. Anything not Chinese was un- 
worthy of notice. They knew everything and 
were everything; and in their ignorance they 
feared no nation. 

There was a rude awakening when, in i860, 
the French and English landed a few thousand 
men at Taku, captured the forts, and with 
but little fighting, drove the Chinese army, 
a huge mob, before them and took possession 
of Peking, burning and utterly destroying the 
beautiful summer palace, "Yuenmingyuen.' 
The Chinese pard, and the foreign tro*ops de- 
parted, but the Ministers Plenipotentiary and 
Envoys Extraordinary of all civilizations h^d 
now the right of residence in Peking and the 
light of audience with the Imperial Son of 
Hfaven. A fear of foreign force settled on the 
Iinpef^al Government, and diplomacy, not

otiji' two prominent statesmcii iii China with 
ability and desire to serve their country for 
the good of the country were at once shelved 
-by Prince Chun, the Regent, and all the im- 
portant positions are held either by old men in 
their dotage, as Prince Ching and most of the 
Grand Council, or young princes of the present 
reigning family, ignorant of all things modern 
and filled with conceit, arrogance, and a desire 
to fill their purses regardle-s of the effect on 
their country. 

The Prince Regent is a man of small ability 
aiid of no experience in the handling of affairs 
of state, lie is much under tlie influence of his 
father's wife, whose one idea is to make the 
family rich at any cost, in statesmanship the 
regent i.- ;i man-afraid-of-himself, whose weak- 
ness and vacillation have been such that all 
the officials stand in deadly fear of him — a 
man of no settled policy or conviction, who or- 
ders this or that done, and then, by the C(ninsel 
of the next adviser, degrades the official who 
is doing as ordered. What is the result? The 
few strong men are out of office. No official 
dares assuine the slightest responsibility or to 
act decisively on any f|uestion. The main ob- 
ject of the officials is to hold office; and to do 
this with safety no f]uestion of international 
policy mu.st reach a definite conclusion and no 
final agreements must ever be signed unless 
they contain some condition upon which argu- 
ment is r^till po-^sihle. There never was a time 
during the last fifty years when the Imj.-erial 
Government of China was so headless and 
Chinese officialdom so invertebrate. 

The much-talked-of modern army of China 
is a farce. It in no way e(|uals the same army 
of seven years ago when under the control c»f 
his Excellency Yuan Shih Kai. The officers 
are few and inexperienced, the discipline slack, 
the pay uncertain, and the whole organization 
permeated with an unrest that may at any 
moment turn it into a dangerous mob. As an 
army of defense it is useless, but as a mob it 
would be a terror among the native Chinese. 

Financially the Chinese Goycrnment is ap- 
proaching a crisis. The credit limit for foreign 
loans is about reached unless better and more 
speedy arrangements are devised for financing 
prospective railways and the natural resources 
of the country. At present nothing is being 
done to remedy these evilr, beyond preliminary 
agreements which never arrive, and much vain 
talk. 

The inauguration of the National Assem- 
bly will only increase (he pre.>^eiU c<»nfii.-.ion. 
A few men in power who do not realize the 
needs of the country are less of a menace than 
several hundred. The menace of the few is 
negative, while that of the many is po.«yitive 
and quick moving, and may with ease run into 
mob law. While a very few may in a vague 
way, realize the needs of the country, no two 
will agree on the remedy, and none will take 
the personal risk of attempting the cure. 
W'hile they talk the opporttmity to save will 
be lost. 

One of the most remarkable charactcri.ilics 
of the Chinese people is their absolute inability 
to combine in a successful manner for any pur- 
pose. As bankers, merchants, contractors, etc., 
they are a success from both a commercial and 
aji ethical standpoint. No peopj.e arc comrjier- 
cially more honest or have a more exalted idea 
of the sacredness of a contract. — eithet writ- 
ten, verbal, or merely implied — than the Chi- 
nese merchant, banker, or contractor of any 
kind, unless contaminated by dealings with 
unreliable foreign hongs at the open ports. The 
non-official word of a Chinese is usiially as 
good as his bond, and his bond is as good as 
the wealth of hi.s family. In fifteen years of 
dealing with Chinese merchants and contract- 
ors of all sorts I have never founJ ihem mali- 
ciously doing work contrary to the specifica- 
tiona or attempting to break their contract 
even if it was a losing one for them. But when 
the business becomes a limited corporation 
and the executive is a board of directoi-s, ey- 
erything goes to pieces. This division of re- 
L'poniiibility, together with the fact that nioit 
of the capital invested doca not belong to the 
directors, destroys aU sen^v of eonnucrctal 
rectitude and of iMiiiiH>nat r«i|KNt;iibUity. It is

opened, the amount of traffic and profits was 
large. What did the Chinese government dp 
but at once establish six or more likin (Chi- 
nese customs) stations on this line, and collect 
customs duties on all traffic! Withm a few 
months the cars were running empty and the 
goods were being transported in the good old- 
fashioned way — packed on mules and camels. 

The ■|)eoplc have no confidence in the offi- 
cials or the Regent, and during the last two 
years this lack of confidence has broadenecr 
into utter contempt. The only thing that holds 
the "powers that be" in place is the lack of a 
leader for the people. .As yet not one has ap- 
peared in China. The people have no confi- 
dence in any of the so-called revolutionary 
leaders, as not one of tlicm has .shown any 
ability beyond that of getting mor.cy front the 
people and spending it in safety abroa<l. 

There is no love of country or patriotism. 
All the present talk of this by the half-edu- 
cated or not half-educated new Chinese — this 
cutting off of fingers, etc.. for love of their 
country— is nothing but the hysterical vapour- 
ings of badly brought up children. No reform 
can come without much hard, unselfish fight- 
ing. The Chinese as a nation are not fighters, 
and never have been. They are commercially 
personified, with only most material ideals. 

Their social structure has been such that 
they have never been taught to obey, and they 
have no traditions of loyalty beyond their im- 
mediate family, which tradition has been done 
away with as ntuch as possible b}- the Chris- 
tian missionaries. 

There have been no hereditary nobles or 
nding class, and no natural leaders of the peo- 
ple. There is no caste feeling, and any one is 
eligible for any official position, provided he 
conforms to the rules of the game. Until with- 
in a few years the rules required a certain 
standard in Chinese literature, that i.-?. an edu- 
cational requirement, and men who stood high 
in the final examinations were looked up to 
with respect and admiration. The knowledge 
required was of no practical use. but ability to 
acquire it marked the man as superior to one 
without this ability, and gave him much pres- 
tige by tradition. These old examinations 
have been done away with, and there is no- 
thing to replace them. 

The great reforms in Japan were due en- 
tirely to the ruling class. The common people 
were attached to the clans of the different 
nobles, and by generations of tradition were 
loyal and obedient. Japan was a fighting na- 
tion, with all the gIori'.>!is traditions of loyalty 
and self-sacrifice. Commerce was much lower 
in the scale. The reform began at the top; 
the high ideals of the leaders with the virile 
militant spirit of the followers and their great 
love of country, made a i)erfect working ma- 
chine. The Japanese had leaders, and were 
led by them. China has none; neither has it 
any traditions of self-sacrificing love of coun- 
try. Its whole history .shows that it has never 
been a unit, but has been composed of weakly 
connected provinces, all jealous of each other. 
The north and south, in addition, have always 
been at variance. Nothing but the hammer ui 
the gods can arouse them and beat them into 
coherent action. The operation will be most 
severe, and China as a nation tnay die under 
the hammer; but to the Chinese people the re- 
sult will be good. The only thing that possibly 
could now save China would be the aj^ear- 
ance of a strong, virile leader who by his char- 
acter and ability could make the people forget 
their own petty commercial selves and ham- 
mer into them the idea of doing something 
without expecting ah immediane money re- 
turn. 

China, with her wealth, natural resources, 
and millions of hard-working, industrious in- 
dividuals, is to6 great a prize to be'lost for 
lack of a master. The master will arrive, and 
Chinas' millions will be hammered into shape. 

Japan is a perfectly organized machine for 
war. She is voung, virile. miliUnt. Her people 
are few and her natural resources and acres 
fewer. She needs people, land, and wealth— 
and what the needs and m^st have lies at her 
feet, practically helpless. It is merely a ques- 
tion c^ time when !«b« will take pOMession. 
Every little det«U bts been attended to<-^iio- 



thing has been forgotten. There will be no 
hurry and probably but little shock. Korea 
was to be mdependent ; Korea was to be 
guarded by Japan ; and then in a few months 
Korea was Japan. The open door was guaran- 
teed in Manchuria, and China's sovereignty 
was to be maintained. The door is open, but 
the door-keei)er is a Japanese. Not even China 
is allowed to build one mile of railway in this 
her own country. No f<ireign capital can enter 
Manchuria except under Japanese direction. 
This all applies to the southern and richer half 
of Manchuria. In the north Russia is e\cn 
more dictatorial, and the Chinese (^vcrnnient 
does nothing. Russia and japait have an agree- 
ment by the terms of which each agrees to 
assi.>t the other against an infringement of 
their alleged rights. China's sole right in Man- 
churia is to protest and protest, and then sub- 
mit to new demands. i!otb Russia and Japan 
may increase iln- number >>i their troops in 
.Manchuria to any extent and call them rail|f ay 
guarils or guards against the plague — or call 
them nothing: China cannot stop them, and 
not one foreign nation is going to interfere.

er. They understand the working of the Chi- 
nese mind much better than any Westerner 
ever can, and they arc able to get nearer to the 
Chinese. They are there as small traders, con- 
tractors, or anything: but nothing of import- 
ance happens which is not at once known to 
the Japanese Gov e rnment. In P e king t h-efe-a^^€- 






until after the Chinese-Japanese combination 
haae been accomplished. 

As to England, France, or Gernjny, not 
one of them can afford to try force in the Fa*" 
East with Japan. They cannot get sufficient 
warships or land forces there, and would not 
dare to it it were possible. They all have 
their own houses in Europe to keep in order 
As for America, its people would not allow a 
war with Japan to save China. We will let it 
go at that, and not analyze the "perfect pre- 
paredness" fjf the American nation for war 
The giving a strong government to China, the 
opening up of the coimtry, and the increased 
commercial value of China under Japan would 
much more than overcome any imagined sen 
timent we might have for the integrity of 
China. In the meantime the Japanese .\mcn- 
can war, the Russo- Chinese troubles, the Mexi 
can-Japanese alliance, the great reforms to be 
made in China tomorrow, will be well worked 
in the international press, that W'estern na- 
tions may have something to think of, or at 
least think they are thinking. 

Always tomorrow. Rut on some "today" 
Liic world will realize iliac while Japan 'na.^

capture the United States, she has taken con-

not an infiuenlial official in any of the Chinese 
Government boards who is not more or less 
under Japanese influence, :\n(\ probably not a 
governor's yamen in the country in which 
there is not a Jajjanese agent. This influence 
has successfully blocked for nearly twu years 
all efforts of Germany, France, England, and 
.^nterica to finance Chinese railways, and is 
now- apparently obstructing with equal success 
the consummation of the loans for the regula- 
tion of Chinese currency until the terms of 
these loans have been so modified that Japan 
is satisfied. Nothing is too small for the Jap- 
anese to overlook, and nothing too large for 
them to study. This surveillance of things 
CliinOire by the Japanese is nothing new. The 
study of the details of finally acquiring China 
has been going on for many years. 

For example, sixteen years ago, at thg time 
of the Chinese-Japanese war, the army of 
.North China was the only force available for 
defense. The quartermaster-general of all 
this army had held his position for some years.

race received into the family of nations upon 
a national equality. Fiut even now, if China 
can put forward a keen, strong, unselfish lead- 
er, otie in whom the people will have confi- 
dence, she can yet work out her own glorious 
salvation. May God grant the quick coming of 
this "Master of Men"!— The Outlook. 



A MERITED REBUKE 



The irreproachable fKiliteness of the late 
Edward \M1. of England, was not only in- 
dividual and relative to persons; it was hu- 
man and general as well. Once at Marienbad 
His Majesty and a few friend.s were having 
tea in a restaurant in the pine woods near the 
town. At a table close by sat another party. 
the host of which was a well known German 
prince. 

The work of attending to the guests at both' 
tables devolved 



his summons. Annoyed by this most un- 
justifiable behaviour, the king said to Sir 
Stanley Clarke: 

"You are to convey my thanks to the 
proprietor here for the protnpt and admirable 
manner in which my party has been served 
at this restaurant.' 

The command was instantly obeyed, much 
to the disgust of the adjoining table, a dis- 
gust wdiich was intensified when the king 
gave the timid young waitress a gold piece. 



NO-MAN'S-LAND 



upon a young English 
waitres.5, and the king did not fail to notice 
Through' his hands passed all the army sup- the rude, blustering manner of the royal Ger- 
plies, "food, clothes, arms, ammunition, etc.. nian, who threatened to report the terrified 
etc. He was the one man who knew how many girl every time she had occasion to answer 
actual men cotdd be put in the field and exactly 
what the outfit of tlie army was. Me was a 
most capable man, no amount of work was too 
much for him, and he took charge of every- 
thing — a remarkable man, and z good Chinese 
scholar. Near the close of the v.-ar it was dis- 
covered that this wonderful man was a Jai)an- 
ese, a devoted subject of the Emperor of Japan, 
and that the Japanese Government had always 
been as well posted on the unreality of the 
Chinese army as had its quartermaster gen- 
eral. He had devoted years to this work for 
the good of Japan. He was executed, but he 
had made a good fight for his country, well 
worth the price he paid. 

We must remember that the Japanese and 
Chinese are more or less die same race. T'leir 
written language is much the .same. They 
think along the same lines, and can understand 
each other in a way never possible between 
the white and yelhnv races. Among the Jap- 
anese now in China many have Chinese wives. 
They intermarry on a basis of equality, and 
the results of these marriages are good and 
the offspring are always Japanese subjects. 
China has now a great fear of Japan, knowing 
her power, but they are rapidly coming to- 
gether. The white races have clearly shown 
that they will have nothing to do with cither 
nation, upon an equal footing, ancl^ that all 
they want from China is profit. China has 
much that Japan requires — peoi>le, acres, re- 
sources; and Japan will supply what China 
„eeds— efficient, economical, strong govern- 
ment and leadership. 

fjne cannot set an hour or a day, for the 
final move to be made, but we may be sure that 
until the end each well-thought-out move of 
the Japanese will have all the appearance of 
having been forced upon them by circum-

When the Law Lords, consisting (jf Lord 
Hahbury (presiding), and Lords Atkinson, 
Gorell and Kinnear, met to hear a Scottish 
appeal case (the Lord Advocate vs. the Walls- 
er Trustees) the Lord Advocate, who was 
leading for the Crown, mentioned incidentally 
that two of their lordships present had not 

faid their fees "on creation as peers." Lord 
lalsbury said the Lord Advocate was a repre- 
sentative of the Crown, and the (?,overnment. 
Did he press the point, or could they go on? 
The Lord Ad\ocatc observed that certainly 
they could ga on. and their lordship?^ niii,du 
treat his observation as an "aside." The case 
raises the imiiortani cjuestion as to whether 
the respondents are entitled to certain fees 
known as the fees of honor, from pcr.sons uu 
whom peera<;es, baronetcies and knighthoods 
of the I'nitcd Kingdom are conferred. The 
question has been decided in their favor in 
the Court of Session by the Lord Ordinary,

The Ileritabte Usher was an office set up by 
a Scottish king in the fourteenth century and 
was conferred on the Cockburns of Langton 
in 1686. It was ratified by the Treaty of 
Union in 1706. It was an office openly sold 
and bought and in succeeding years passed 
through the hands of .-\lcxander Coutts. a rela- 
tive of the London lianker, tu the W alker fam- 
ily, two elderly ladie.s ni which ultimately de- 
vised it with other property to a trust for the 
Scottish Episcopal Church. Meantime the 
question of the fees exacted had been raised 
by Lord .Melbourne and Lord i •almerst(in. 
among others, but nothing was done until 
1904, when a comniittee rep'U'tcd in favur nf 
buying out the Heritable Usher's right, it was 
decided first that the Walker Trustees, who 



are in effect an incorporated company, .^huulu 
justify their rights in a court of law. and they 
won the two actions referred to above. Mr. 
Ire contended that, as the Walker Trustees 
had formed themselves into a statutory com- 
pany, thev could not usher the recipients into 
the Royal presence, and were not entitled to 
charge anv fees for doing nothing. Lord Hals- 
" bury said the Scottish Courts api>cared to 
have found that a simple section of the Act of 
Lnion had e.staldished a right to take fees in 
every case in which honor was conferred in 
tUe United Km,gdom. The Solicitor-Gejieral 
followed on the same side, and Mr. Clyde, 
K.C.. tlicn opened the case for respondents, 
maintaining that this was a heritable office

harvest to the Heritable Usher, and bring a 
good deal of grist td tils mjtli Lord ilalsbury

of the observation. With a view of showing 
that origiijally the predecessor of the Trustees 
performed a duty of value to new jieers, Mr. 
Clyde pointed out that he was a kind of door- 
keeper to Parliament.apd<twas. so far as new- 
peers were concerned, a useful persotr to fee.

A TYPICAL ENGLISH SAILOR. 

Down to i8_vi 'he East India Ci.mipany had 
in its employ a body of officers and seamen 
who formed a force 'half way between a mer- 
chant lleet and a navy. They "went out de- 
sirous to trade, but prepared to fight for free- 
dom to trade." For more than two hundred 
years they played a great part not only \n 
building up the va-^t fabric of the company's 
trade, but also in making India British. 

The verv first vnyage showed of wh.at stuff 
these men were made. In 1^10^ two ships, the 
"Dragi)n'" and the "Heil-n." nn^t with slorins 
in the South .-Xtlantic on their homeward voy- 
age. I'he rudder of the Dragon got unshipped, 
and the sea was too high to allow of its being 
rchung. Some of her crew would have left her 
to drift, and made their way home in the 
Hector. lUit Captain Lancaster, wdio com- 
manded the JOragon, would neither al)andon 
his .ship nor risk inflicting loss on his employ- 
ers l>y keeping his consort in comi)any. 

The Hector was sent home bearing this let- 
ter to the company: "l will well strive with all 
diligence to save my ship and her goods, as you 
may perceive by the cour.se 1 take in venturing 
mine-lSwne life," and tho.se that are with me. I 
cannot tell where you should look for me if you 
send out another pinnace to seek me, because I 
live at the devotion of thewind and seas." 

It is pleasant to know that in the end all 
went well. The storm abated, the rudder was 
rchung, and Captain Lancaster lived to reach 
home, to be knighted, and to become a director 
of the l^ast India Company. — Spectator. * 


MEDAL FOR PATIENCE 



An artist's lot is not always a happy one. 
The late Hoi man Hunt struggled for years 
against adverse criticism in his effort to sim- 
plify, purify and beautify British art. At one 
time his poverty was so great that he made up 
hs mind to emigrate to Canada ; but, fortu- 
nately, Millais came to his brother artist's res- 
cue, and persuaded him to go down into Sur- 
rey and continue his work. 

It was here that he painted the background 
for his famous picture, "The Light of the 
World." For three months fiolman I^^unt paint- 
ed all night iii the open air "ny the light of the 
full moon and a solitary candle, and during that 
time he placed upon the canvas his immortal 
work. .'\H nver the world "The Light of the 
World" was exhibite<l, and caused a great sen- 
.sation. Reproductions sold in every town '.nd 
country village. Its sales up to the presenr time 
cannot fall short of a million pounds. 

The original picture was placed in a chapel 
at Oxford, but later the artist spent some weeks 
in repairing the damage that had been caused 
Kir- ,^^r^\,^^t 1Mi»ii hf \-\uintpc\ a larp'er rnnv. 

which was hung in St. Patrick's Cathedral. 

"The Light of the World" is almost but not 
quite, the most popular religious painting in 
existence. It is beaten by the wonderful "Head 
of Christ,'* by Max. There is no neck —just the 
head. The eyes seem, to be closed, but after 
ga:^ing at the painting for some time they ap 



popular of religious paintings, and well oyer a 
million reproduclivnis of it have been sola. 

The picture that beats all records is that 
of the Eiffel Tower. In two years one firm of 
photographers sold over 700,000 copies, and 
at the present time there are between 3,000,000 
and 4,000,000 scattered about the world. 

Compared with this sales of photographs of 
the Tower Bridge are quite insignificant, al- 
though they amount to nearly 1,000,000. 
Strange to .say, Londoners do not buy many 
of these pictures. Most of them are bought 
by visitors to the metropolis, who take them 
away as souvenirs. 

The historical interest of the Tower ot 
London always appeals to those who come to 
London for a holiday, and hundreds of thous- 
ands of photographs of the Tower have b^eii 
carried across the .\tlantic to the States. 1 ne 
sales of it greatlv exceed those of the Tower 
15ridge, and since photography became so 
popular it is estimated that about 1,200,000 
l)ictures of the Tower have been produced. At 
the small sum of a penny each this would re-

two and three shillings and even more. 

The sales of photographs Oi the ^ate v^^ueen 
Victoria were simply enormous, and must 
during her lifetime have totalled 1,500,000. 
Thousands of pounds worth have been sold in 
the Colonies and in India, and in one case a 
single Australian firm took over $25,000 worth 
in one consignment. T h e ph otographs of

CURIOUS COURTSHIPS. 



AND NOW? 



THE DELHI DURBAR 

Delhi Ke-Bashah i.s the title with which 
the King-Emperor will be hailed at the l.)ur- 
bar in December. Xo official jirogramme is 
yet ready, nor wilT be published till August. 
It is, however, possible to gi\-e an idea of the 
programme. The work of preparation is even 
now well advanced. It involves almost the 
reconstruction of the city, roads, railways. 
sanitation all being extensively improved. 
King George will be the first of the iinglish 
to be crowned Delhi-Ke-Bashah. He will him- 
self perform the act of crowning, as no re- 
ligious ceremony is possible in a land full of so 
many jarring creeds as is India. I' or his 
Majesty and Queen Mary special crowns are 
being made at the Crown jewelers. Thev will 
be of a. characteristic Indian type, and will be 
assumed by their Majesties at the great Dur 
bar on December 12. 

The King and (Jueen will be in Delhi from 
December 7 to December 16. The King then 
leaves for a shooting expedition to Xepalll. 
He will be the guest in a shooting camp of the 
Maharajah. Her Majesty will remain at Agra. 
Among the ceremonies fixed is a State entry 
into Delhi, presentation of the inevitable ad- 
dresses, and the reception of several thousand 
Indians in a pavilion on the historic Ridge, 
where our camp was during the Mutiny days. 
Ruling chiefs are to visit the King during De 
cember 8 or December 9. His .Majesty is anx- 
ious to come in personal touch with them, and 
for the.se two days he will do littje but engage 
in con'^-ersation with the rulers. This is a bril- 
liant stroke of p(,'licy. due entirely to the 
King's perfect comprehension of the whole In- 
dian problem. It will make permanent the 
good effects of his visit to India. The King 
will not return the visits. In that respect his 
l)lace will be taken by Lord Hardinge. who, 
when the King steps ashore at Bondjay, 
ceases to^e Viceroy, and becomes simi)ly Gov- 
ernor General. 

The Durbar takes place on Tuesday, De- 
cember 12, and will be witnessed by at least 
50.000 people. The scene will be overwhelm 
ingly splendid even .to the Indian mind, which 
e.xpects a great deal. There is to be, another 
day, a review of 8o,(X)0 tnntps. The Imperial 
Service troops are to be under the command 
of their respective chiefs. Calctitta children 
will sing the National .Anthem on their Maj- 
esties 'arrival in that city in four languages- 
English, Gujarati, Marathi and Lrdu. Lord

CLAIM TO EARL'S TITLE 

.All the elements for a sensational no\el are 
to be found in the history of the ancestors of 
William Ward, a Melliourne builder, wdn) is 
a claimant to the title and estates of the Earl 
of I3udley. The claimant, wdio, it is stated, 
will shortly visit this country, left London 
for .-Australia in 1883. He asserts that he is 
descended in a direct line from Thomas, the 
son of the second Baron Wanl and eleventh 
Lord Dudley. Of this'rhoma>. who was born 
abi'Ut 1685. a romantic story is told. Whilst 
a young man he married and "settled down in 
the town of ("ireat Ttirrington, situated on a 
hill aliove the River Ti.>rridge, seven miles out 
of l-5ideford. He soon made a reputation for 
himself as "The bold smuggler of i'lymouth." 
In his fast lugger he ranged the Bristol chan- 
nel from Barnstaple to Laiurs End, and ran 
many rich cargoes along the coasts of Devon 
and Cornwall. He had a great affection, how- 
ever, for his home in old-world Torrington 
until his exploits became so obnoxious to the 
authorities that he was practically outlawed, 
and a price put upon his head. Then, fearing 
that the 100 guineas offered by the Govern- 
ment for his capture might lead some of his 
smug'^gling comrades into treachery, he sailed 
away to Jamaica. There he contracted a biga- 
mous marriage with the daughter of a Spanish 
planter, and, incidentally, acquired very con- 
siderable estates. He died in Kingston, Ja- 
maica, in 1736, leaving sons by both marriages. 
In due course one of his Jamaica descendants, 
who had risen to the dignity of a judge, sailed 
for England to do battle for the family posses- 
sions. Judge Ward died, however, either on 
the voyage or immediately after landing. 
Thereupon his nurse, a clever adventuress, 
finding herself out of employment through the 
death of her master, seized his papers and 
boldly set up as the judge's widow. In this 
capacity, it is said, she succeeded in drawing 
a ])cnsion from the Government of Jamaica 
for several years. Some years ago the Dev- 
onshire Wards — from whom William Ward 
traces his descent — began to put forward thdir 
claims, but without any substantial result. The 
present claimant is apparently determined, 
liowever, to bring his case before the public, 
and it is with that object that he is comtem- 
piating an early visit to England. He has a 
l^rother living in Bri.xton.

ROYALTY WITH ROYALTY 

According to the modern rule, royalty may 
only mate with royalty, except under very spe- 
cial conditions. In our own country the mat- 
ter is left in the hands of the sovereign by the 
Royal Marriages Act ; and in a few cases, .such 
as the marriage of the Duchess of Argyll and 
the Princess Royal, and the unions with the 
Hoisses of Teck «n4 Rattenb«cg. wtvichi ao

Some customs prevailing in certain parts 
of the Soudan have been described by Artin 
I'asha. wdio recently made a journey up the 
Blue and the White Nile. The gentleman is 
Minister of iMlucation in Egypt and in his let- 
ters to his wife gave an account of his exijcri- 
ences. which is now published in n book called 
"England in the Soudan." 

He came across certain tribes where tlie 
women, he says, "seem to have passed the lim- 
its of even .American women," and he naively 
adds that but, for the distance from Cairo and 
the wildness of the country he "would ^villing!y 
pass several months in the midst of these good 
folk in order to learn the meaning of virtue in. 
both the ancient and the modern tense oi the 
word. 

One girl may have as many as from seven 
to fifteen wooers, who court and flirt with her 
for a whole year in the sight of her parents. 
They not only visit her in the daytime, but re- 
main at night near her dwelling to mount 
guard outside her roorn, going so far even as 
to keep watch within her room in order to l)c 
at her service in case she shotild awake. 

"If she asks for water, as many calabashes 
of water arc offered to her as there are lovers 
in attendance. Should she desire to pav calls 
on her friends, the wdiole of her lovers offer to 
carry^ her palanquin, and again it is the as[)ir- 
ants to her hand wdio undertake to anoint her 
with butter every morning. The period of 
courtship lasts for a year, at the end of wdiic'n 
period the beauty must make her choice. When 
she does so the unsuccessful wooers go off to 
repeat their performance with another girl." 

The.se maidens are black, and nominally at 
least Mohammedans, but in the matter of 
rights and liberties they have little to learn. 
The Shilluks of the White Nile, on the other 
hand, are as far as possible from being Mo- 
hammedans, yet their women have similar priv- 
ileges: 

"With the Shilluks it is the women that 
rule the household, the young women them- 
selves that choose their husbands, and that, 
once married, assume the post of commantl. 
The strongest and most hot-headed man dare 
not beat his wife, for he would be looked down 
upon immediately, and would be unable to find 
a second wife to succeed his first. No, mis- 
sionary effort affects the Shilluk woman ; it is 
practically impossible to convert her either to 
Christianity or to Islamism, for she is the 
guardian and depository of the Shilluk tradi- 
tions, religion and historical customs."

"And now?" asks Mr. H. G. Wells in the 
Daily Mail. 

."What new phase in the life of our nation 
and our empire does this tremendous cere- 
mony inaugurate? The question is inevitable. 
There is nothing in all the social existence of 
men so full of challenge as the crowning of a 
king. It is the end of the overture ; the curtain 
rises. This is a new beginning place lor his- 
tories. 

"For England is no exhausted or decaying 
country. It is rich with an unmeasured capa- 
city for generous responses. It is a country 
burlhencd indeed but not overwhelmed by the 
gigantic responsibilities of empire, a little re- 
laxed by wealth and hampered rather than en- 
slaved by a certain shyness of temperament, a 
certain habitual timidity, slovenliness and in- 
r-incerity of mind. It is a little distrustful of 
intellectual power and enterprise, a little awk- 
Avard and ungracious to brave and beautiful 
things, a little too tolerant of dull, well mean- 
ing and industrious men and arrogant old 
women. Jt suffers hypocrites gladly, because 
its criticism is poor, and it is wastefully harsh 
to frank unorthodoxy. But its heart is sound if 
its judgments fall short of acuteness and if its 
.standards of achievement are low. It needs 
but a quickening spirit upon the throne, always 
the traditional centre of its respect, to rise from 
even the appearance of decadence. There is a 
new quality seeking expression in England like 
the nsing of sap in the spring, a new genera- 
tion asking only for such leadership and such 
emancipation from restricted scope and un-' 
generous hospitality as a King alone can.giv«' 
it. . . . 

"AVhen in its turn this latest reign comes at' 
last to its reckoning, what will be sum of its 
achievement be? What will it leave of things 
visible? Will it leave a London preserved and 
beautified, or will it but add abundantly to the 
lumps of dishonest statuary, the scars and 
masses of ill-conceived rebuilding which tes- 
tify to the aesthetic degradation of the Vic- 
torian period? Will a great constellation of 
artists redeem the ambitious sentimentalities 
and genteel skilfulness that find their fitting 
mausoleum in the Tate Gallery? Will our lit- 
erature escape at last from pretentiousness and 
timidity, our philosophy from the foolish cere- 
brations of university 'characters' and eminent 
politicians at leisure, and our starved science 
find scone and resources adequate to its gigan- 
tic needs? Will our universities, our teaching, 
our national training, our public services, gain 
a new health from the reviving vigour of the 
national brain?

Western \Totor says: in no plac« on the 
continent of North America is the good roads 
cause making as rapid steps of advancement as 
it is in Canada, and in British Columbia in par- 
ticular. Within a short time it will be possible 
to motor from Vancouver over the mountains 
and on over the great Alberta country to the 
Great Lakes and from there on would be a 
choice of several routes to the Atlantic sea- 
board. 

It is the plan in Canada to have the work 
of highway construction under the direction of 
the provincial government, and secure the 
funds dh-ectly by ajipBBpwpation. T hc i fi i in adian 
government realizes the importance of building 
good highways and has been most generous in 
providing for that work. 

The good roans ]/r<.>jci;l vvhich iiic Crtnatiidi'iS 
are working on now is the trans-provincial 
highway from tlie Alberta border line to the 
Pacific seab(jarcl. This great work is really of 
inter-provincial character, and the governments 
of British Columbia and .\lberta working har-

Trail. Preliminary work on die proposed steel 
structure is now being carried on by govern- 
ment engineers and it is expected that it will 
be completed early next year. A second bridge 
will span the Kooteney near Creston. 

Crossing the Columbia river at Trail the 
great highway will follow the Columbia as far 
as Sayward and then swing to tlie southward 
and follow the Pend d'Oreille river as far as the 
mouth of the Salmon, and then through the 
Bayonne country to near Kootenay Landing, 
where tlie new bridge wilf be built to connect 
\vith the road from Crow's Nest to Creston. 

From Creston. which is one of the finest 
fruit districts of the interior of Canada, the 
road is already cotnpleted to the Alberta line 
with the exception of the Kitchener-GoatfeWgap 
of six miles already referred to. The route is 
then through Fcriiic and Cranbrook and the 
famous Crow's Xcst Pass. From the provin- 
cial ijotindary to Calgary the road has already 
been completed by the Alberta government. 

With the completion of this great work it 
will be possible for the motorist to travel .^.ooo 
miles through one of the greatest scenic and 
farminf^ districts of the world in pa.ssing from 
\'ancouver to Alberta. Once reaching .Alberta, 
it will be possible to go on to the Atlantic, hav- 
ing a choice of several excellent routes. This 
will then make an ideal transcontinental high- 
way. ^ 

But it will even be possible to make a 
greater trip than this, for the Pacific Highway 
Association, organized by western good roads 
enthusiasts, has projected a 2.000 mile highway 
from Mexico to Vancouver, along the Pacific 
coast, and this connecting with the Canadian 
thoroughfare vvill make th^ route over 5,000 
miles in lenjs^th. 

Think what a grand trip it would be to 
motor from the Mexican border on the south, 
-through beautiful Southern California, now the 
Mecca of thousands of tourists annually, on 
through Northern California, then on through 
the Siskiyou mountains and fertile lands of 
Oregon into the scenic Puget Sound country. 
Then crossing the border line into Canada and 
touching at Vancouver and the awe-inspiring

It begins to look as though history will re- 
peat itself and that within the next few years 
we will see the restoration of the great trunk 
highways, and see them restored in such a man- 
ner that they will endure far longer than they 
did when they first made their appearance for 
pioneers of the west to reach their qew homes. 
Travel by motor car has all the charm of the 
old stage coach journey without its delays and 
inconveniences. It has a speed approaching 
that of the train, and without the restriction of 
route or schedule. The motorist can sUirl when 
he pleases, stop when he pleases, and go prac- 
tically where he pleases. 

But it is not only the modtorist who will be

farmer, even the small one who cannot attord 
an automobile, or who does not even want one, 
will greatly benefit thereby. One of the biggest 
problems that the farmer has to coitsider is 
that of getting his crop to market. With poor 
roads it takes a great deal of time and power, 
and with ideal highways the expense would be

would nuuii be saved. 

It is just such arguments as these stated 
above that have moved the westerners on both 
sides of the Canadian-American line to road 
building activity. They have learned a lesson 
from European countries and they are now act- 
ively applying the principles tliey have derived. 
Aithougii it is a fact: thai there is less nccti 
for the good roads agitation in British Colum- 
bia than in any other part of the Pacific Coast, 
because their government has always been alive 
to their great value, it is true that the Cana- 
dians are redoubling their efforts and in .iddi- 
tion to their grand east and west grand trunk 
systems they are planning hundreds of miles 
of branch roads. 

There are bi*^ nrcects uiKler wav iti all 
sections of British Columbia. An imporian.t 
branch of the great trunk road is that which 
will connect this main highway with the Sheep 
Creek mining camp, by way of Sayward, Fruit- 
ville, Erie and Salmon. From the Sheep Creek 
road is another branch connecting with the 
bridge over the south fork of the ^Salmon river, 
six miles from Sheep Creek road. From Erick- 
son there is a wagon road connecting with Foit 
Hill, Idao. and the American road system. Con- 
necting with the trunk road at Cianbrook is the 
road from Golden through the Windermere val- 
ley. At a point on this road another road has 
been located which will cross the Alberta line 
and provide a highway between the famous val- 
ley and Banflf and Calgary. The Alberta section 
of this scenic drive has already been laid out by 
the Alberta government, in connection with the 
Canadian Pacific Railway. Nelson will be con- 
nected with the big road by means of the pre- 
sent wagon road to Bonnington Falls and a 
bridge spanning the Columbia river. 

The second largest project which the Cana- 
dians are now working on is the building of a 
road northward to the Alaska line. Present in- 
dications point to its ocmpletion within four 
years, and by the time when the Canadian Pa- 
cific liighway Association shall have completed 
its great project the two railways joining would 
make it p.o5-sible tu travel from far soixth in 
Mexico to the southern boundary of Alaska. 

Another road which will be built will be 
from the present terminus at Campbell river on 
Vancouver Lsland, to the northern end of Van- 
couver Island. This island has great things in 
^torc for the traveller, and when avenues are 
opened up for the enjoyment oi the .-.cenery, the 
region to the north of Victoria should be popu- 
lar with tourists. , v .• 1 
From Alberta to the New Island National 
park at Buttles^. Lake, another road will be con- 
structed This national park is one of the finest 
in the world and abounds in glaciers, snow- 
capped mountains and other scenic beauties. 
It is a great hunting and fishing district, and 
now enjoys an international reputation among 
sportsmen. 

On the mainland two roads are now under- 
way, one from Vancouver and Westminster ot 
the eastern boundary of British Columbia and 
the other from New Westminster to Hazelton 
on the Skcena river. 

When all these grand projects have been 
brou'rht to a successful completion, Canada will 
surely rival Europe in the matter of good roads, 
and be far ahead of the United States in that 
activity. Thousands of tourists will undouHt- 
edly be attracted to Canada yearly by the ideal 



offfice was conferred upon the A^ommou 

Crier. The office is not what one might ima- 
gine from the title--a sort of dignified bellman 

but is held by an ex-arniy officer, who is 

also mace-bearer and sergeant-at-arms of the 

city. 

More significant than all these is the deci- 
sion of the King and (Jueen that beyond his in- 
vestiture at Carnarvon Castle, the Prince of 
Wales shall take no «5»rt in any public func- 
tions until he is twenty-one years of age. Thax

Having read it once, I re-read it to make sure 
I had made no mistake. Then laying down the 
paper, I 'wrapped my.self in thought, though, 
if my memory fails not, it was a rather warm 
day to wrap oneself in anything. My heart 
went out to those pupils of that western em- 
porium of music, and it grieved me to think 
that there is still something rotten in the state

have' everything else to make me happy, but 
1 can enjoy nothing because of thi> conviction 
of others' dislike. Can a girl like myself get 
a new point of view?' 

"Two common causes of such depression 
are apparently ruled out by the terms of this 
letter. One is ill-health, which often makes the 
mind so sen.sitive that words and acts that 
would usually pass unnoticed give sharp pain, 
just as the common sunshine hurt.s sore ayes. 
.Xnother is uncongenial companionship, which 
starves one's ideals like a famine and irritates 
erne's tastes like fever. 

"In this case the girl is made miserable, aji- 
parently, by a lack of affection, of recognition, 
of attracting the favoral)le attention of others. 
It is pretty safe to say that the fault is more 
largely with the girl than with the people she 
meets — at least, this is usually the case. What 
such, a girl needs is what scores of other girls 
like her need — an entire change of mental atti- 
tude. Her heaviness of spirit would be imme- 
diately enlightened if she could assure herself 
that people like her, in^stead of — as she feels 
now — that they dislike her. But she is not 
likely to get such assurance by waiting for it. 
She will never get it by sitting down witli a 
grieved expression. More likely than not, 
what she really needs is wholesome activity. 
First, let her make a silent declaration of her 
own independence — asserting to herself, when 
she is slighted, that she can get along very well 
by herself, reciting the brave lines, 'I am mas- 
ter of my fate, I am the captain of my soul.' 
Then let her set about the definite mission of 
increasing the happiness of others. Instead 
of waiting for social joys to come to her. let 
her carry them to her acquaintances. Let her 
busy herself in the service of her neighbors. 
Let' her say over and over the great words. 
"No't to be ministered unto, but to minister.' 
No point of view so surely carries with it 'the 
garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. "

in a northern city on the Great Lakes (or one 
of them) as a purveyor of knowledge on the 
subject of playing the piano. Being a man 
who, by all reports, knew his business, he was 
successful ; and in order to convey a sense of 
the reputation he enjoyed far and near it is 
only necessary to remark that in a northerly 
direction his fame spread as far as the middle

under a terrible disadvantage, to wit: the city 
in Avhich his shingle was wafted to and fro by 
the lake breezes was witliin the geographical 
boundaries of the L'nited States of America. 
To the mere layman who is not ati fait in mat- 
ters musical that may not seem to be a crush- 
ing indictment, but to those who know, it par- 
takes of the qualities of the tragic. 

what most other teachers have observed, that 
the great .American music metropolis is Berlin, 
lie must have trained numcrotis school girls; 
guiding them up the steep and rugged path un- 
til they had achieved that giddy pianist height 
that enabled them to cope with the difficulties 
of Moszkowski's "Serenade" and a Mendels 
sohn "Song \Vithf)Ut Words." ^^"hereupon the 
art of a fair performer having unloosed the se- 
cretion of the maternal lachrymal gland and 
the strings of the paternal pocketbook, she tri- 
umphantly proclaimed that she was going to 
(^.ermany to "finish"' — whatever that means. 
.•\nd so the Spanish pianist found that he sel- 
dom got beyond the Moszpwski '"Serenade" 
and the Mende!s.-?ohn "Song \\'ithout Words," 
and he doubtless observed that few of his pu- 
jiils disseminated them.selves over the land- 
scape advertising themselves as having ob- 
tained their skill throngh his teaching, but 
preferred tc j^o to Kutupf, if it wci'c only ior 
a few months, in order that they might re- 
turn to the F'5arnum public with the distinction 
of having studied with leschetizky or Schar- 
wenka or another of the more or less great 
European teachers, whereupon the Spaniard- 
on-the-Circat-Lakes became commendably 
wroth, and having asked himself why this was 
thusly, and not being able to answer his own 
question, he decided to shake the American 
sand from his shoes and take himself off to the 
American metropolis of music — Berlin. 

And now, behold ! in a few short years what 
great changes! He gets the "finishing" pupils 
— 'ino-st of them from America — and, what is of 
even greater moment, he demands and receives 
larger fees, and his pupils gladly advertise 
themselves as having studied with him, and 
(■crowning glory of a long career!) a we.^^tern 
conservatory advertises for a teacher who has 
mastered the Alberto Jonas "method." (Inci- 
dentally, in case Mr. Jonas is not aware of the 
fact that he has an only-genuine, original and 
patented "method" he will be interested to 
learn that the aforementioned western music 
emporium has discovered it for him.) 

This same story, with a mere change of lo- 
cality, might with equal applicability be told 
of Godowsky or Bauermeister or Scharwenka 
and others, ,

beat vaudeville all to pieces? And do not the 
disinterested observers have quite t^ie time of 
their life following the vagaries and ludicrous 
situations of the play? 

Music is probably "^ the lait'oflhe 4Ks in 
which Americans fail to stand on their own 
merits and abide by their own judgments. For- 
merly painters and architects haa to study in 
Paris. Now many of our painters sp*(|c>; 



itie.s, but the old war horse has done duty for 
several generations, so they use it without 
questioning its applicability. Judging by re- 
sults, "atmosphere" for most of them consists 
in the ability to sit at a piano on the "top floor 
back' 'in a German pension for many hours 
each day. It has not necessarily taught them 
how to analyze the form of the Bethoven 
Sonata they play, nor has it given them the 
ability to harmonize a simple melody^ at or 
away from the instrument, and a sad number 
of them do not know the difference between a 
two-part song form and the exposition of a 
fi)2;tie. 

To make an abrupt modulation back to our 
main tiieme, does it not seem a reasonable sup- 
positiui; that Mr. .Alberto Jonas knew about as 
much iihout playing and teaching the piano a 
few year? ago when he was in .America as jle 
does now while residing in Berlin? And yet a

MEN WHO MAN THE LIGHTSHIP 

The men wdio, in the service of the Trinity 
House, man the lightships around our coast, 
are a few of those who still remain the simple, 
hardy men-- who used to man our barks and 
schooners. 'I iic liiajuiiLy ul lilciil liiVc uccu 
born and bred within the hail of the salt spray, 
and have passed their lives exposed to the buf- 
fetings of the sea in all its moods. 

Those who see the lights twinkling across 
the placid summer sea are apt to think of the 
life of a lightshipman as an ideal existence, 
but the men can tell a different tale. During 
the winter months, when the wind roars and 
the seas break in mountains upon the shore, 
their solitary home lies straining at her cables 
and washed continually by great waves from 
which there is no escape, and when the black- 
ness of night or the heavy pall of fog descends 
upon the waters, the stout boats are cut off 
from all sight and sound of land and are in con- 
tinual danger. The risk of collision at sea, 
ever between ship.s which are free to move, is 
very- great, but anchored as the lightship is in 
the fairway of all passing shipping, the crew 
can only rely upon their warnings to keep 
other craft from them. 

Science has reached these vessels, and to 
some extent, alleviated solitariness. The mod- 
ern lightship is fitted with wireless telegraphy, 
and it is one of the most incongruous sights 
to see a horny-handed sailorman, who is un- 
familiar with the appliances which have been 
called into being in all great centres, tapping 
off messages on a Marconi despatches and re- 
ceiving replies through the space which inter- 
venes between his floating home and the shore. 
The submarine signal bell, another device 
which aids the lightship in her duties, helps to 
add both to her own safety and that of passing 
ships which are fitted with the necessary ap- 
paratus for detecting the warning strokes of 
the bell beneath the waves. — Charles L. Clarke 
in The Boy's Own Paper.

"High wins," was my reply. 

Andy cut a king, and 1 turned u[) a seven-

"I win," says Andy, "and I'll just pick 
Bob Slagle." 

"That leaves me 'The Runt,'" was niy re- 
sponse; "and just to make it interesting-, I'll 
bet you that 'The Kunl' and 1 will get more

^\'hen we got him calmed down, he told us 
all about it. "1 was running through the cac-

sizzing right ahead of me that sounded like 
the little saw in a planing-mill. 1 hauled up 
and there was a rattle-snake coiled up just 
licking up all kinds of red air and looking hun- 
gry for a bit out of ihe white meat. 1 blew 
him awav into the cactus, and sli])ped in an- 
other shell and ualloped on after those quail, 
and all of a siTadea I came to a little place 
wdiere three paths crossed, and dad-burn me 
if there wasn't a snake on two of those paths, 
and as I turned to come back 1 heard one start 
Ins rattle on the right, -and then another one, 
and as I broke into the one path that seemed 
to be empty, up goes another head and, Siz/. !

We were due to dri\e about twenty 



!U!lCS 



from San Diego southeast into the foot-hill 
ccniutry of California, there to meet a ranch- 
owner friend of .Xndy's. who had reported 
thousands o\ (puiil around liis place. Cali- 
fornia quail do not run in the ordinary bevies 
of from a dozen to thirty Idrds or so, like the 
true ")>ob-whites" ->f the Middle. Southern 
and F.astern States, but tliey arc found in 
great dri)\-cs of froni seventy-five to three it 
four hundred birds. They rarel\ Ik/ (U'cently 
to a dog. but prefer to' trust to their legs to 
get away, although they are remarkablv swift 
(ui the wing, and possessed of great vitality. 
They go through the air like bullets, and the 
quail-shooter from "the States"' has some new 
wrinkles to learn when he first commences to 
shoot the California birds. 

They are very partial to the thickest cover 
they can find, and the tiiickest cover next to 
the' hair on a dog's back is the chapparral of 
Southern California and Mexico. It is mainly 
com])osed of cactus of various varieties, brani 
ble.s and thorny shrub-, with sonu-- hare spots 
here and there, and vvlicre we were going, ra- 
vines and gullies running through it, making 
the traveling something awful. We ilid n^t 
take any dogs, as a dog would not be able t'> 
staiul the cover ludess he was suitably attired 
in a complete casing of ' boiler-iron, and any- 
way, these f|uail will not lie to a dog once in 
fifty times in such cover as we were going into. 

'J'he approved method of hunting California 
quail in such a tangle is to flush a flock, and 
that mean.s -getting up a couple of hundred 
birds, and then running after them as soon as 
they have lit. and then chasing them up again. 
and at last scattering them all arouu<l in the 
chaparrel. and then you car go around, kick 
them up one and two at a time, and get good 
shooting. 

The morning of the next ilay foimd u-^ in 
the cover, and we soon found a drove of ([uail 
that must have had three hundred Idrds in 
it. We had unhitched the horses in the valley. 
and left the cook there with instructions to 
have dinner for us at two o'clock. Fifty yards 
up the hill we ran into the (piail. and away 
they went into the chaparral. We were scat- 
tered out about forty yards apart, and as we 
went up the hill. Andy and Bob were on the 
right, and "The Runt" and 1 on the left. "The 
Runt." by the bye, was six feet six inches in 
his stocking feet, and so thin that he could go 
through prettv near the same space that a 
saake comd sup pa&i lU. wc an luij^cu antcm, 
and finally got the birds up again, and a big 
biHich of tiiem shied over towards where .Andy 
and Bob were going, and .\ndy called and said 
they would go after that lot. and for us to fol- 
low the others. -i 

So we divided forces, and after that "The 
Runt" and I flushed our bimch twice more 
and got them scattered, and began to shoot. 
"The Runt" killed two rattlc-snakcs and 1 
killed ctne on the hill where we were shooting, 
and after about three hours tranipuig and 
shooting we had all the birds we cared to take 
down, So we went back to the horses, and in 
about half an hour in comes Andv. and the 
first thing hc^Sys i.s "Where's Bob':^" 

And while he was telling about gettmg 
separated from Bob, here conies the ccntre- 
rosh out from the thickest part of the chapar- 
ral, on the dead jump, and his clothes were 
hanging in threads from him. His hands, pro- 
tected by stout gloves, were not scratched, but 
everywhere cHt, from his head to his heels, he 
was crias-crossed in every direction like a hot 
waffle. I never saw a man so everlastingly 
•cratdied up in my life. He wa.s as pale as a 
gliQtt, and the fir»t thing be satd when he 



bodied cactus t>uaii vrttn eicveri 
stickers reaching into me trom all the points of 
the compass. Every time T tried to round the 
ends, something„else,^rabbed me, and by the 
time I had made forty yards my duds were in 
ribbons. I held on to my gun and dodged all 
that I could see coming straight for me, but 
the air was full of half-backs, wdiolc-backs. 
quarter-backs and draw-lnicks. and I liegan 
t" think I was running throUgh a procession of 
buzz-saws and wild-cats. 

"l''inally I could sec a little daylight ahead 
here, and I put in my l)igge.st licks to get out, 
and here 1 am. But no more California rattle- 
snake (piail-shoiUing for your I'ncle h^ob. Give 
uu- a cpiiet little old Indiana corn-field, where 
the .-iiakcs are all liedded down for the winter, 
and a black-berrv^ patch is the worst you can 
expect in the traveling." 

-Andy eyed his partner in disgust. 

"Mow many birds did you get?" saj's he. 

"Uirds!" says Bob. "'riiat snake I got was 
a l)ird all right, but I didn't stop to pick him 
up." 

"A'ou must a-got rattleil. says Andy. 

"Rattled!" says Bob, wiping his scratched

ROUGH SHOOTING IN PEMBROKE- 
SHIRE 



To lovers of a mixed bag. obtained by hard 
work in charming country and a soft climate, 
there are few more attractive localities than 
the dingles of South Wales and the moors be- 
tween, especially those along the border line 
between Plnglis'h and Welsh rembroke.-hirc. 
Besides its beauty and sporting attractions, 
the historic interest attached to this old-world 
cm*ner of Wales is considerable. For several 
days I had been having good sport with the 
-nij'C on some favorite bogs, where one may 
generally get froni two to fi\'c couple in the 
m.uning, according to whether and shooting, 
ami if there is a touch of frost a duck or two 
as well, when it was decided that three of u.s 
siiould shoot a narrow, well-wooded glen, full 
of snug lying for woodcock, and wheu- the .. 
hounds, when they come. seUhun draw with- 
(.'ut finding a fox. It was a grand morning, 
with a suspicion of frost in the air, and the 
hist day for pheasants, February i. i';io. when 
wc started, with a pixcd pack of Sealyham ter- 
riers and spaniel."^, to hunt for woodcock 
amongst the russet fern and rhododendron 
bushes which clothed the sides of the glen near 
its brook's junction with the Clyddau river, and 
here and there the tiny stream below us w'.'.s 
completely -screened by patches of golden 
gorse tangled with red bramble leaves. The 
guns had hardly got to their places — one high 
u]) on either side and one near the stream be- 
low — when with cheery cries of "High cock!" 
the I)eaters and the pack set to work with a 
will. Almost at once a woodcock was flu.shed, 
and the shout of "'Cock forward!" from llu 
stcntorian-voiceil keeped caused a flock of

a deal of fuss a cock pheasant, radiant in win- 
ter plummage, rose, and a.s he dashed off be- 
tween two ash trees w-as neatly killed by the 
lady of the party, and started the bag. The 
fun with the rabbits now became general as 
they were turned out of the thick covert be- 
low, ttybe killed or missed as they sK)Ught"«>the 
safety of their holes in the bank above. Soon 
two Woodcock were flushed, and dashed, as 
they ah\»ys do here, along the stream ; but 
only one fell to a second barrel, to be eventual- 
ly retrieved from a dense and thorny thicket. 
When we had reached "the top of the glen. 
where the stream which flows through it 
comes bahbling down from a wild, desolate bit 
of moorland above, not many miles from Fref- 
gam Owain, where the great Welsh hero. 
Owen Glyndwr, was born, we decided to work 



ground often, screened by the low-growing 
branches of the spruce firs. 

.Aftei lunch 1 set out along to try for 
snipe : so, leaving the beautiful old Welsh man- 
sion where I was a guest, I turned my back on 
the river — here bowered in rhododendrons and 
gigantic laurels intertwined with toucheiJt of 
\VcIsh brambles— and breasted the hill, mak- 
ing for my favorite snipe moor, Passing the 
neat white buildings of the home farm, I soon 
reached a long stretch of boggy moorland, and 
began by bagging a couple of green plover, 
wlulst the rest of the flock flapped round with 
plaintive cries as they circled higher and high- 
er. I may here remark that these birds pro-

seen good bags made in a few hours, and what

is much the pleasantcst way «jf shooting. 
Though I have not heard of their breeding

cially parts of Scotland, they do so more even 
than formerly, laying their four eggs on the 



It was early in .-Vugust when, free at last 
from the cares of work, we came once more to 
the -well-remembered loch in tlie oul-of-the- 
wav spot wdiere gillies are unknown, and 
where one can fish wdiere and how one likes, 
and does not have to bribe a hardy Scot to 
take one to the best beats. Our first day's 
fishing was not a success, but we got one good 
.-,ea trout after an exciting struggle. He was 
liookcd on a large red palmer quite near to the 
boar. From the first we knew he was a good 
fisli, ;is he went through some of the usual 
jun-qung performances directly he was hooked. 
Then he went oflF like a fiash straight away, 
and, after taking out about thirty yards of 
line, turned (ptickly and came heading back 
a^ain towards the boat. In his effort to keep 
the line tight the fisher reeled up hard, and, 
forgetting that a thwart was behind him. he 
tried to back, with a tragic result; he collapsed 
entirely, his legs went up in the air, and he 
sat, not on dry boards, but in about four inches 
of water wdiich our man-of-war contained in 

her hold. In this position he was, of course. 

heli)less, but he .stuck to his guns wdth true 

I'.ritish pluck, and wet though hi.s person was. 

he went on reeling in line till again he felt the 

fish. Then he had to give up his rod for a mo- 
ment, not because he wanted to. but because 

iieing rather stout, he could not get u]) wdth it 

in his hand. For a very .short space I held the 

rod, and terrible thoughts entered my mind as 

to what would happen to me if the fish escaped 

at that critical juncture; but all was well, once 

more he was on his legs, and, though looking 

rather inebriated, his hat on one side of his 

head and his face with a purple tinge, he soon 

had the fish safely in the net. a good sea trout 

weighing 2 J -2 lb. A few brown trout were 

bagged, too. and that was the result of out 

first day. 

Manv days of harrl fishmg followed, when 
our luc'K wa.s not of lite best ; still, at length wc 

had what we considered when starting out an ^ . 

ideal dav. The wind was fresh from the S.W., \ in fact, we knew very little of what was hap- 
and when we arrived at the loch the water was pening. Luckily he appeared to be firmly

as the boat was rocking and I was in a good 
fish; furthermore, I could not make out the 
smallest rea.son for this injunction. "What's 
the matter?" 1 asked. "My dropper is in the 
seat of your l)reeches, that's all," and he start- 
ed operating verv near my person with his 
knife. What had'happened was this: the min- 
ute 1 had hooked my fish, my friend, seeing 
that it was a good one, reeled up and put his 
rod along in the boat, and while playing the 
fish 1 had hooked myself in the back fin or 
thereabouts. 

By the time I was released my fish w-as 
alongside and netted, and on being weighed 
turned the scale at over 3lb. This was a good 
start, and on we went with our beat. Our next 
adventure that day was one which, except for 
the fact that there were three of us in the boat 
to wdtness it. might be thought a fisherman's 
yarn, or in ordinary words a slight exaggera- 
tion of the actual facts. This is wdiat hap- 
pened: after we had been fishing for some 
two hours, one of my friends hooked a small 
sea trout 'of about 'ij<»lb. This fish, being 
])layed on a light loft. rod, had a good run 
straight away from the boat ; he then returned 
very fast, and passed, in spite of all the efforts 
of the gillie, under the boat, and thus behind 
the fisher. Having arrived there, the fish 
jumped and landed himself in the boat. The 
fisher, in hi.s anxiety to reel up and again get 
a tight line had not. for the time being, the 
smallest notion of him endeavoring to play his 
fish from one side of the boat while the poor 
beast was gasping at his feet, having jumped 
in behind his back, was too much for all of us, 
and we laughed till the tears ran down our 
faces. 

The day eventually ended, and the last 
cast, made practically in the dark, brought 
luck to us. So dark was it that one of us put 
on a Mayfly, hoping that .some monster might 
possibly rise and take it. There was no result 
for the space of a quarter of an hour, and, in- 
deed, we were very tired and expected none, 
as it had turned cold and the water was a dead 
calm. However, just as we reached our land- 
ing stage and the keel of the boat touched the 
ground, a fish rose and was hooked on this 
never-to-'be-forgotten Mayfly. We had plenty 
of fun in landing that fish in the dark, as wc 
could not tell his size or his whereabouts, and. 



nicely broken, but not too rough, and we had 
an excellent time of it, though not without 
some adventures. We launched our frail craft, 
and in we jumped, the three of us as keen as 
mustard, for we knew that the conditions were 
good, and we wished to get quickly to work. 
The best beat on the loch was near our launch- 
ing place, and we began steadily and slowly to 
drVft down, watching each cast with feverish 
anxiety. Wc had not long to wait ; a 'boil in 
the water not far off showed where a fish was 
on the surface, and a large tail was next seen 
almost under the boat. 1 had been fishing 
with a fairly long^line, and qf course had.no 
time to shorten up and make a light cast over 
the fish. "Put your flies over him, for heav- 
en's sake!" came from the other end of the 
boat; "Fm in a terrible mess." 

To the best pf my ability I obeyed, and 
cra.sb went four or five yards of line and cast, 
all in some of the best loops I have ever seen, 
right over the fish. It was a desperate effort 
on my part, and I never hoped for any result ; 
but for some extraordinary reason the fish topk 
my tail fly. 1 was almost too astonished to do 
anything for a moment, but that moment was 
a short one, and I soon had the fish more or 
less under control. At this stage I heard my 
friend's reel at the other end of the boat aUrt 
running with some speed, and I th<mght h|i,Kj 
had got into another fish, and so he l>*§*r^^S 
kind ! Not having time to Ioq|iii||j|iiHiH 
was doing, 1 waa somewhat all| 
shouted out to me, "For ( 
still r Thb was not very 



hooked, and was soon brought to the boat and 
nettefl, turning out to be a brown trout of 2lb. 
Our bag at the end of the day was quite a nice 
one for Augu.st, containing five sea trout, the 
largest weighing 3^:2 lb., and twelve brown 
trout. Carrying these, we stumbled homeward 
in the dark, weary, but content. — R.N.C.O.

all through the night. When they ar-

"And Jiave you got some more work

father. 

•'Yes," he replied with a smile, "My 
old master met me, as I was buying 
those presents, and engaged me as

There followed the making of detail-

getting together of luncheon and am-

iiiMrrow's time. We then went to bed.

I'hich my couHin was perfectly ac- 
customed. .\."« we neared the surf. Us 
heating against the perpendicular wall 
of rock grew louder and louder, and 
had become so great a roar by the time 
we hod reached the one little cove 
where a boat could be put out In safety. 
that it took a summoning of ra.y cour- 
age to embark unhesitatingly with my 
cousin Con. He, however, seemed to 
have no fears, and Immediately untied 
the boat from the ring In the rocks. 1 
took first turn at the oars, while Con 
sat In the bow with rifle held ready to 
nre at the otter even upon Its most un- 
esj>ected appearance. 

Although I was perfectly familiar 
with oars from much rowing in Mon- 
terey Bay, this zlg-zaging in and out 
among the rocks was new to me; and 
iseveral times I came dangerously near 
upsetting the boat. At last I allowed 
a wave to catch and hurl us against a 
rock with .such force that Con himself 
decided to row. • 

So thoroughly fnmiiiar was iie with 
the ebbs and swells that fie, flan 
through much narrower places thati I 
had dared attempt, and yet not once 
did he so much as scrape a rock. 

As we edged aw-ay from the baae of 
the bliff, the water became more open; 
and for a second time I was entrusted 
with the oars, hauling In among the 
rocks, or off from them, at Cons di- 
rection. In the open sea the waves ran 
high before a stiff breeze, which came 
precariously near to betnsr from the 
south. Here, however, 1 was perfectly 
at home. 

All the forenoon we plied In-a,n<I«ut 
among the rocks wainoulj la \»lng4«

times Con thought he had alght of Wm.

SOCIAL BLUNDERS 



There are some people who have an un- 
fortunate talent for both saying and doing the 
wrong thing and ia consequence placing 
themselves in the most invidious positions. 
Some, no doubt, awake to this fact when it is 
too late ; others, however, are blissfully un- 
conscious, that there is anything unusual 
either in their remarks or in the surroundings 
in which they have placed themselves. The 
latter are undoubtedly the ones to be envied — 
and imitated for :it least, they do n"t try to 
mend the mistakes they Iiunc made, always a 
fruitless and generally an undigniticd thing 
to do. If you make a social blunder — leave it 
alone — you can't make it better, but you may 
make it ten times worse. If you make a social 
blunder it is quite possible that you are the on- 
ly person to notice: so like Brer Rabbit, you

pie blunder into false or delicate positions 
from sheer nervousness. They, know there is ' 
one subject they must avoid when they meet 
so and so, but they have repeated, this to them- 
selves so often that naturally their mind is 
lull of the forbidden subject, and in the first

Then, too, there are some people wKq, 
quite unconsciously connect certain .evesfcts 
with certain people. A knows B's father bias 
been shut up for years as a hopeless lunatic, 
yet whenever she meets B she is sure to make 
some stupid remark abmit lunatics. This is 
the sort of thing that invariably hajipens. B 
says "We have been rcpapering the drawing- 
room and my wife has been moving the furni- 
ture about. 1 think you'll agree with me, we 
have made great improvements." 

"Oh." .says A waggishly, ■"bacl hal)it, mov- 
ing one's furniture al)out : signs of mental 
abberration." .\ does not know why he says 
this .sort of thing to B — but he does. C'est plus 
fort, qui hu ! 

In fact, an unkind sprite seems sometimes 
to inspire us with the tnost unf-.;!-ti!iiale idea= 
and we ask two people to meet who are not 
on speaking terms or we inquire anxiously 
and insistently after our friend's pet dog — 
who has just suffered the happy (lispatch. 

This kind of blunder belongs to the class 
it is hopeless to try, and cover up. 

But there are others which no woman in 
the world should be guilty of. It is unpardon- 
able to invade your friends antl neighbors at 
uncanonical hours, or to overwhelm them 
with mistaken kindness. There are certain 
things, too, which cannot be done. When a 
new little bride asks you to take her to a gar- 
den party given by thost; stiff neighbors of 
yours whom you hardly know yourself, or 
when the son of dull Mrs. C asks you to form 
a party he is giving in his mother's aljsence at 
her house, you know that to agree to either of 
those propositions would land you in a very 
false position. And society is full of similar 
pitfalls. But if nervousness, stupidity, and 
that negative virtue, good nature, are respon- 
sible for many social blunders, there exist 
other and less harmless contributory causes. 
Indi.screet curiosity and a love of malicious 
gossip often make people overstep the bounds 
of good breeding. They forget that rule of 
manners wh'ni v/;\- taught i' cw in their 
childhood, nan\ely, that it is lude to ask (pies- 
tions. A sp .ci:i; v.e.ikness of the.:<" inquisi- 
tive bu.sybodies is a wish to interfere with 
purely private afifairs. Such as one's monthly 
salary, for example, .\nother example is a 
wish to interfere between mistress and maid. 
They are quite sure that poor dear Mrs. 
Blank's Marv Jane is no better than she ought 
to be. And equally sure that it is their boun- 
den dutv to enlighten poor dear Mrs. Blank. 
To judge bv the number of questions which 
I get based on this subject, it is an alluring one 
but there is nothing truer than that, "11 ne 
faut pas mettre, Ic doit entre I'arbre et 
recorce." It is most foolish to tell people 
tales about their servants and one of the most 
uncalled for social blunders. 

You will get no thanks. In all probability 
you won't be believed— and the purity of your 
motives will be doubted. 



You will see that 1 was right when I ad- 
vised you to have a long black satin coat early 
in the beginning of the season. 1 am glad it 
has been so useful, and I think that the idea of 
having large lace revers an exceedingly good 
one. I like colored satin coats in the evening 
very much, but in the day time prefer the neu- 
tral shades, such as mole color, grey, and a 
kind of deep fawn, which look charming in 
satin. The fa'ct is, nobody can do without 
coats of all kinds, because we have altered our 
wa}s and must provide accordingly. I always 
think that a coat is so nice for those who want 
to wear smart gowns at parties and who must 
travel in train, taxi, or motor-omnibus. Noth- 
ing is so disagreeable as to feel dressed u\) in 
the street, and the very thin satin, cashmere 
and cloth coats have proved invaluable. Su-

SUMMER VEGETABLES 




Two Pretty Effects in Street Costumes 



GOWNS AND GOSSIP 



There is literally no limit to the wzy in 
which the evening gown can be renovated. 
•~F,or' Jiistance?*! saw a^-ball gown the other flay 
of white satin with a beautifully embroidered 
pearl panel all the way down the back and 
front. The back panel had been stepped upon 
and a big "skeg" had been left as an ugly con- 
sequence at the hem. This, however, was com- 
pletely altered by a bordering of very losely 
embroidery laid on over the tear, and it looked 
just as though it were originally part of the 
decorative scheme. Even the foulard gowns 
are often made with an upper dre^s ninon. and 
every blemish is minimized by the filmy soft- 
ness of this pretty transparency. Yet another 
pretty fashion that recurs at intervals is that 
of using lace flouncing. At the moment it is 
very much seen hung either from ninon tunics 
or arranged one tier upon another. Naturally 
enough, the lace must not be run on too full, 
because, although the hobble skirt is as dead 
as a door nail, there is still a becoming straight 
line a*KHit the skirt of the period that should 
not be iiiterfcrcd with. 



a good lawn or embroidery gown invariably 
sc-ore.. Tile washing gown comes back from a 
good laundry looking perfectly fresh and clean, 
and it can be worn with a big "Charlotte" of 
embroidery or lace, while the sash tied high 
at the waist a TEmpire looks charming upon a 
washing gown. The new Marquisette goyvns 
also clean remarkably well, but nothing will 
ever quite oust the lawn and lace washing 
frock from its well-won position, 

I wish that somebody would start an agita- 
tion against over-scenting. Once or twice 
lately at parties I have been overcome by the 
concentrated essence of lily-of-the-valley and 
strong white lilac, which are both now so 
fashionable. One reads of the vulgarity of 
patchouli in the old days, but it can never have 
been worse than what we endure now, and 
however good it may be for the scent trade, it 
is exceedmgly unpleasant for the rest of the 
community. 

There is a perfect passion just now for veils 
in a pal^ ecru shade wi th. a ftcrol I, silk pattern 



embroidered all over them. These veils are 
.excell.e,nt.as, dUi^t-prptectors^^and th^y are also 
very becoming. 'iMie American fashion oFpin- 
ning the veil together at the back of the neck 
has its advantages, but it is nece.ssary to use 
a sensible safety-pin brooch, which \vill not 
catch into the meshes of the net. The best 
method of arranging these veils is to pin them 
together round the neck first of all, and then 
gather the rest of the veil up on to the hat. 
The reverse process does not give such a be- 
coming result. 

Very pretty mobs of lace, wreathed with 
flowers and trimmed with long velvet stream- 
ers, are being made for the young girls, and the 
little helmet-shaped hats with brim rolled up 
at the back and down in the front, decked with 
ostrich-feathers, have made much havoc with 
the affections of us all. The large hat, becom- 
ing as it is, is distinctly a nuisance from the 
practical point of view, and the beneficetat 
consequence to the milliner is that she is now 
asked to providi.Jboth kinds of millinery. 



Every year sees an improvement in our 
mode of cooking vegetables. Proper respect 
is shown them both in their preparation and 
dishing up, and they are not merely boiled 
and served as a garnish to a joint of meat. We 
have, however, much to learn even yet of the 
many and delicious ways of preparing for the 
table the most common and inexpensive of 
garden produce. The following are a few sug- 
gestions which may be hcl])ful in this connec- 
tion : 

Vol-au-Vent of V'»grtabl«s 

.Make a vol-au-vent case of puff pastry and 
decorate it with whipped white of egg, using 
a pipe and bag for the purpose. Return it to 
the oven to set the egg, tlien fill it with the 
jircpared vegetable ragout, dish up on a dish.-

the raiirout, boil separately a few vegetables, 
siicii rts pccts, J iciiCii oeans, uroau wcans, 
voung carrot, turni]), and new potatoes, cut- 
ting all but the peas and broad beans into small 
dice. \\ hen cooked and well drained, mix 
them together, adding some of the following 
sauce, saving the liquor the vegetables were 
cookfd in to make it with. Put one and a half 
^^..cta. of butter in a stewf^Mil "Wirh -an" rnmre 
and a half of fine flour. Fry them togerher 
witb.o'.it discoloring. Then stir on to them 
threc-c|uarters of a pint of the liquor from the 
vegetables. Stir till it boils, then add a cpuir- 
ter of a pint of cream, a ])inch of salt, and four 
drops of lemon juice. Hoil, and keep skimmed 
till reduced a (juarter jiart, then strain and use. 

Tomato Souffles 

Pass half a pound of firm tomatoes — not 
over-ripe — throu.gh a fine sieve. Whip in a 
ha.-.in till white and thick one and a half gills 
of cool liijuid aspic jelly. .-\dd to it three- 
(|uarters of a pint of very stiffly-whipped 
cream, a dessertspoonful of tarragon vin- 
egar, a flust of coralline pepper and salt, an 
eggspoonful (^f castor sugar, a few drops of 
carmine, and the tomato' pulp. Surround some 
ollic Swiiiiic CS-^C.T witi'i !')anviS .11 v.'i.'.te p..|jt;. 
secured with sealing-wax. Pour the prejjared 
mixture into the cases, and stand them in the 
refrigerator for about half an hour. Then re- 
move the papers, sprinkle the souffles with a 
little choDped parsley, dish them on a dish 
])aper in a silver dish, and serve as an entree 
for dinner <.)r luncheon. 

French Beans 
Take two poimds of freshly-.gathered 
I'rench beans. String and, if quite young, only 
cut them in half. \Vash in cold water. Drain 
and ])lunge them into plenty of boiling water, 
seasoned with salt, and with a tiny piece of 
washing soda in it. Boil quickly for fifteen 
mintttes or more, then drain un a sieve. To 
make this a nourishing dish, put a few cooked 
flageolets with the beans. Melt three ounces 
of good fresh butter in a stewpan. put in the 
beans and flageolets. Heat them thoroughly, 
sprinkle with a little Icmon-juice', and turn 
out on to a very hot dish. Garnish with small 
rings of fried bread, and serve at once. 
Spinach Patties 
Make some pastry cases, such as used for 
oyster patties, and keep them hot. Take two 
pounds of spinach, pick the stalks off, and 
wa.sh well. Put the spinach in a large sauce- 
pan and cover with cold water. .\dd a salt- 
spoonful of salt and a tiny piece of washing 
soda. Viring cpiickly to the boil, keeping the 
spinach pressed under the water with a spoon. 
Boil for two minutes, then drain and wash 
well in cold water. Press all the water from 
the spinach, chop it. and rub it through a 
coarse wire sieve. Put it in a stevvpan with 
two ounces of butter, a dtist of pepper, salt, 
and castor sugar, and a tablespoonfulof flour. 
Mix well together, and add two tablespoon fuls 
of cream. Bring to the boil, and fill the pastry 
cases with the spinach. Dish up on a dish 
paper, and serve very hot. 

Curry of Vegetables Iced 
Melt two ounces of butter in a stewpan, add 
four onions, sliced and cut into dice. Fry till 
a light brown, then add a pinch of herbs, a 
tcaspoonful of Oxo, an ounce of ground rice, 
the strained juice of a lemon, a dessertspoonful 
of curry powder, or less if very strong, a pinch 
of salt and coralline pepper, a pint and a half 
of ve""etable stock, and' five .«heet.«. of finest 
leaf gelatine. Stir all together till boiling. 
Then simmer gently till the onions are soft. 
Rub all through a wire .sieve, add a quarter of 
a pint of stiffly-whipped cream to the puree 
when coqI. and' mix in a pint of .cooked vege- 
tables that have been cut into neat shapes. 
Keep on ice for half an hour, then dish up with 
a border of cold cooked rice, sprinkling this 
chopped parsley. 

New Poutocs 
Take as many as required of medium-sized 
new potatoes, clean and scrape them, using 
cold water. Put them in a stewpan with a lit- 
tle salt and a sprig or two of mint. Cover 
with cold water. Bring quickly to tlie boll, 
then boil gently for about fifteen minutes* Re- 
move the mint, pour away all the water, partly 
cover the stew-pan, and stand it on the sidt of 
the stove for the potatoes to dry, DIrfi i\ 
up in a pile in a hot dish, and p«wr«V|f,

gently for a quarter of an hour. Add a few 
drops of carmine, and rub all through a heir 
sieve. Reheat the puree, and use as directed, 
sprinkling it with a little chopped parsley. 
Green Peas 
Take as many freshly-gathered peas as re- 
quired, shell them, and keep them covered 
with a damp cloth. Put them in a stewpan 
with an onion, a well-washed lettuce, and a 
piece of mint, Jivipg the two latter in a piece 
of muslin. Sea'son with .salt, and cover the 
peas with boiling water. Watch the water re- 
boil, and cook gcntlv for about fifteen or twen- 
ty minute:-. Drain on an upturned sieve. Melt 
an ounce of l)utter in a stewpan, add the peas, 
let them heat thoroughly, then dLsh them up 
in a porder of plainly boiled Patna rice, and 
garnish round it with small quarters of cook- 
ed tomatoes, a few blanched almonds fried in 
butter, also some stoned raisins, cooked in the 



same way. 

Select small and quite young marrows. 
Peel them very thinly, cook in plenty of salt- 
ed boiling water till tender. Take them up 
and plunge into cold water. Then drain care- 
fully on an upturned wire sieve. Place them 
in the dish in which they are to be served, and 

together a quarter of a pint ot Bechamel sauce 
-Nvith half a pint of liquid aspic jelly and a quar- 
ter of pint of cream. Flavor with a little tarra- 
gon vinegar and salt to taste. Boil the sauce 
for eight minutes, keeping it skimmed. Strain, 
and u.se when it is nearly cold. Sprinkle it, 
when poured over the marrows, with a little 
chcopped parsley. 



CEREMONY 



AMnen the Prince of Wales was installed 
a lynight of the Garter the other day there 
were many enthusiastic commaits on his 
demeanor during the ceremony. It seemed a 
surprise to some people that the young prince 
should betrav no signs of nervousness, or in- 
tl-.« fir.;t .-rrp^t niihlir ■fjinrtjnn sn 



V|-V 



L, V «.* *- 



which he appeared as the leading figure. 

Yet why should wr find anything surpris- 
ing in the Prince's perfect competence? There 
is in it a significance beyond the garter cere- 
mony. In other departments of life people 
who do not fail to recognize that such com- 
petence is not an accident but the result of 
instinct, educated by training and industry, 
it is only about the competence of royal per- 
.sons for their business that there are the 
strangest notions. A number of us fail to give 
royalty its due. 

Perhaps we can only estimate the value of 
royal demeanour at public functions by con- 
juring up a picture of a country where such 
functions would have to be carried through 
by officials without either inherited instinct 
or special training. Mr. Jones is president of 
the Republic.' and is we assume, an excellent 
fellow. Master Jones is no better, and no 
worse than most boys. But neither of them 
shines at ceremonial functions. Of course, 
some one says, "Well, that is the fault of the 
ceremony — silly, meaningless, outward, slow. 
Abolish it." But you can never abolish cere- 
mony. It is the necessary symbol of the in- 
evitable public relations between man and 
man. Rather you must educate your Joneses 
to do well what most monarchs do well. And 
you nmst be prepared for the Joneses doing 
it indifferently until they are educated. 

It takes a long time to build up certain 
instincts. Now is the time to meditate on the 
importance of behaviour. ' Few people con- 
sistently behave well. Royalty could teach 
fhem a lesson if they had the disposition to 
learn. 



THE VANISHING HOTEL LABEL 

A correspondent who har. just enjoyed a 
holiday scamper through France, Germany 
and VJelgium, laments the decay of a practice 
that has given many travelers a little innocent 
pleasure and satisfaction. Every one knows 
the joke about the indignation of the Ameri- 
can tourist when a too attentive servant care- 
fully cleaned all the hotel labels off his trunk 
Apparently this harmless form of ostentation 
is itu longer j>Oa5ii>ic, Our cGrrcsponacnt 
reached home with only one addition to the 
hotel labels on his bag, and this in spite of the 
fact that he had rested at a dozen places. At 
one hotel he asked for a label, and was told 
that the practice had been discontintied. The 
explanation offered was that the luggagDe 
label is an out-of-date form of arfvcrtisemt"" 
and no longer sufficiently effeCttial to |liii

ernment to meet the situation that hasgradu- 
,Vilv presented itself in respect to the protec- 
tion of Barkerville from periodical overflow by 
the v.'aters of William.s Creek, or as an alter- 
native the removal of the town to a near lo- 
calitv ..n hiuhor -rouud an<l safe from inunda- 
tion 'when the sprin- rains and meltmg snows 
convert the usually staid atul tranqud creek 
i^to a turbulent torrent. Whether or not the 
mi-c-estions contained in the report recently 
m^de by Mr. Napier, of the departments en- 
g-ineering corps, as rccommendation-j to the 
Governmcmi, will be accepted and acted upon, 
cannot as vet be conjectured— but it is cer- 
tainlv a proposal demanding careful consider- 
ation and prior investigation ot all issues in- 
volved, when one speaks calmly of abandoning 
or removing a long established town. 

And this in effect is what ^Ir. Napier has 

proposed. 

Hi*^ recommendation is based upon caretul 
consideration of the situation at Barkerville 
from the technical professional standpoint, 
this situation being graphically and dispassion- 
ately indicated in the report it.self. as pubhsh- 
cd in these columns a week ago. It is briefly 
that the protective bulkhead be strengthened 
and maintained for a further period of two 
years, at the expiry nf which steps be taken 
to establish a new Barkerville, elsewhere in 
the vicinity and the district. 

The reasons for the suggestion are cogent, 

too. 

primarilv. it is pointed out that the mining 
industry is the support of Barkerville and the 
district' adjacent. It also is the virtually sole 
resource of the district, and its single contribu- 
tor to Provincial revenue. 

And the necessities of the mining industry 
in its development demand that the very con- 
ditions that have produced Barkerville s an- 
nually recurrent floods through the silting up 
of Williams Creek shall now be accentuated 
and enlarged— that the mines and the district 
and Barkerville itselt may go forward and 
prvosper. 




And the moving of Barkerville °";^« "^^^^^ 
hand does not present so formidab e diHicul 
ties as the mere mention suggests to tne 
mnd The architectural ^l-ies jf tl-^ town 
are nil divided by several, and from the 
^^. money standpoint it P^o^^J^^^^ 
be infinitely cheaper to pay out the $10,000 jr 
$12,000 representing the total improvement 
values of the town rather than ."^^'"tain lo. 
another year or two the protective ^buUch<.ad. 
It is not in impo.sing buildings, but 'n it., 
cherished and splendid memories, tha Bar^ 
kerville lives and deserves always to li-.c m 
world-wide remembrances. And whether ro- 
mance and historical associations are mov- 
able to order is matter for debate. 

The strong probability is that a further in- 
vestigation will be ordered shortly, touching 
not only the engineering but all issues in- 
,.olved-and upon the report of such investi- 
cration the Government will act--either aban- 
doning Barkerville and cstabhshing a new 
town on a townsite a mile or so distant from 
the historic Cariboo capital, or at some other 
even more suitable location, m close touch 
with the mining enterprises which are the me 
of the district, and which under John Hopp, 
[ B Hobson and other staunch champions, 
and with lessened transportation charges to 
the district and more adequate means of bring- 



ing water to the gravels, appear to have been 
recently reawakened, to bring yet other mil- 
honrof virgingold to the insatiable coffers 
of the world. 

In whatever decision may be reached, care 
must be taken to recognize not only the Pres- 
ent situation as affecting Barkerville.. hut the 
final result when other enterprises have been 
inaugurated and other watercourses and stor- 
a"re areas, such as Jack of Ckrbs Lake, have 
been affected as they will !be by progressive 
mining movements. 

And if it be Fate's dictate that historic Bar- 
kerville— the Barkerville that first like a mag- 
net drew the eyes of the world hitherward- 
shall cease to be, the site and town relin- 
quished to accommodate the growing mining 
business of the district, it surely will be a 
finale in keeping with the romance of tl^ 
camp To raze such a famous centre, the mar- 
ket place and capital of auriferous W illiams, 
Antler, Grouse and neighbor creeks of the 
early "sixties"— to obliterate the camp as 
meteorically as it was given existence, were 
surely less prosaic and infinitely less melan- 
choly than to see it deserted, melancholy, for- 
potten, sink into dismal ruin as have Boston 
Bar, Brooklyn, and so many, many other 
Western metropoli-to-be which have seen 
their short halcyon days— and are no more. 



AS TO VEGETARIANISM 

Western peoples everywhere show signs of 
a determination to maintain themselves in 
conditions far above the minimum necessary 
for exi'^tence, even though this standard has to 
be preserved by a restriction of their nunVbcrs, 
tacit or otherwise. It can hardly be doubted 
that such communities will always be able to 
1.1 J ^u^: — ,.,« and ♦■^^a* wh<»n nressure arises 
they will even take the offensive against tne 
communities living on the lower .scale. War 
may change its scope or type, but the struggle 
of one race to supplant another, of one form ot 
civilization to crown out another that -is '_^sSa 
efficierit. must continue and will be intensified 
as the habitable world fills up. At the present 
time we see that certain Oriental races, by 
their contentment with a lower standard of 
living, can undersell and would eventually dis- 
place the Western races by their cheapness, 
provided they can live under the shelter of 
the white man's system of law and order. 
Sooner or later the white man revolts and re- 
*ftiscs to »ul«nit.to competition, on these racial- 
ly unequal terms; he excludes the Oriental by 
force, and his continued ability to do so will 
depend upon the vigor, the initiative, we mitfht 
ev«n say the masterfulness, of the conwnuimy 
he developia. Now these qualities are of tpfe 
sort Wniih w^ cannot help associating with
